Today it’s all about rural exploration as I take my motorcycle out for a spin! I’m calling it – Then I Found this Old Cemetery? Confederate Soldier’s Headstone? What? 92 Rides!
I’ll take you through Jefferson and Tuscaloosa counties in Alabama and end up in Tannehill Historical State Park.
When exploring the rural countryside you never know what you’ll find.
Today we find a beautiful old church and an old cemetery with a headstone of a confederate soldier according to https://www.dreamstime.com/mccalla-alabama-usa-nov-headstone-confederate-soldier-next-to-tannehill-country-church-ironworks-historical-state-park-image167761089
It’s found in Tennerhill State Park next to an old church.
Here is how the church is described according to https://rs.locationshub.com/Home/LocationDetail?rsLocationId=096-10152472 :
The Tannehill Country Church was built in 1905 and served as the Kimbrell Methodist Church on Eastern Valley Road until the late 1950s. It sat idle for about 15 years and then was donated and moved to the park. The church is a one-room building with one center aisle and pews on each side. Up front there is a raised pulpit area and a piano. There are two windows in the front and back, two windows and a door on the left side and three windows on the right side. The building does have air-conditioning, heating and a handicap ramp on the left side. It will seat approximately 100 people. There is no room in the church for a reception. The restrooms are in a separate building near the church.
My rural exploration ideas come from my childhood of taking slow country roads in rural areas in Montgomery, Alabama.
