Vintage Parkville-Overlea: Place of Worship
Can you guess where in the greater Parkville-Overlea area this photo was taken?
It's hard to write about this week's photograph without naming the church in the photo.
At the time the picture was taken, back in 1904, this church stood in Parkville—today, a church of (mostly) the same name still stands there but it looks pretty much not-at-all-the-same.
The photograph above was downloaded from the Baltimore County Public Library Legacy Web photo collection. It was originally taken by Mrs. Douglas Horstman.
"The frame structure was built in 1895 to replace an earlier stone chapel built in 1839. It was replaced by another structure in 1954," according to a description on the library website.
