Third Sunday - September 2014

 Orange County, Virginia

Somerset Christian Church - circa 1850

An unaltered example of a mid-nineteenth century country church, Somerset Christian Church still serves the small community of Somerset in rural Orange County. The Italianate architectural influences set this church apart from the more common Gothic and Greek Revival style that characterized the majority of rural churches during this period. The church was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
