Old North Church
I just can't get over that I was actually there. Mom and Dad went to a 29th Division reunion in the 90's and toured here too. It made it all the more special knowing they had also been in the same space.
It was all so beautiful, old, narrow streets, green space and monument behind the church of dog tags. Brick everywhere. Knowing of all the people that had gone before and will after. The wavey glass window panes, the light was just so.
All pictures or of the Old North Church in this blog...
The minister giving a talk on the church. They still have Sunday services here.
This is the oldest pipe organ in the states... It still works and is used in the Services.
There are not pews but boxes, sort of.... with a wooden bench, chair and little bookcase for setting your things during the service. Would be good for corralling children :)
1724 geez... Oregon was not even a state until 1859.. When did Lewis and Clark even make their trek to Oregon.. have to look that up on google :) My how things have changed...
It was just a special experience in time and space.
Take Care All & God Bless
P.s. Lewis & Clark expedition was 1804 to 1806
