Presbyterian Church, Sharpsburg, PA

January 5, 2017

Sharpsburg is another of those communities in western Pennsylvania crowded between the river bank and surrounding hills. Hit hard by the collapse of the steel industry and other dependent manufacturing, mainstream denominations like the Presbyterians have been in decline. This grand church dates from the period of growth at the turn of the 20th century. It is now a parking lot. Photographic documentation may have disappeared with the Presbyterians themselves.
