GOOD FENCES


Visiting the historical part of Clifton, Virginia recently, I took a lot of fence photos for Theresa's Good Fences.  These were from the Clifton Baptist Church on Main Street.  





































The history of the village of Clifton can be found here.  I will have more photos soon.




Thank you for the fun Theresa.

  1. What a quaint little church. It's not what I think of when I think of Baptist but it's quite pretty.

  2. Very pretty! The fence looks newer than 1910, so I wonder if it has been replaced. I would love to see inside! Wonder if there is a current service and members?

  8. White Picket Fence - very traditional, and very suitable to the location.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
