This is part Two of Three parts covering Falmouth VA (just a little part of it)
As I approached the area of the Hobby School I looked up and saw this brick church – The Union Church. It was on a very narrow street and somewhat on the top of a hill. Like so many churches in tis area it served as a military hospital during the Civil War. It was built in 1819. It served the Falmouth community until 1935.
You can imagine my surprise when I went to look at the side and rear of the church
Where is the rest of the church?
Later, I found out that the church part of the building was brought down by a storm. The narthex of the old Union Church is all that remains.
I had to look this up: The narthex of a church is the entrance or lobby area, located at the end of the nave, at the far end from the church’s main altar.
The church is located on the edge of a union cemetery.
