St. Johns Chapel Ruin Revisited

Last summer I took a trip to photograph an old Episcopal church ruin located alongside a quiet country road. It’s name is St. John’s Chapel, located just west of the town of Easton, MD. It’s over the bridge on Unionville Road / Rt. 370, a smaller road that connects to Rt. 33. It was built in about 1835, abandoned around 1895 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

When I went there last summer (July 2015) the vegetation was quite heavy, nearly totally obscuring the front. So I made a trip back there on a warm early spring day before the plant life started waking up and growing again. This time I was able to get some good shots of the front, which was virtually invisible in the summer with all of the vines and leaves covering it.
