Old Pine Grove Church
Old Pine Grove Church
The original church burned down and the community rebuilt the church. I was at the new church a few years ago and was glad they had kept the
rustic feel of an old country church with modern improvements. When I attended the church many, many years ago it had kerosene lamps and a wood/coal stove. This link should let you see the Rebuilt Pine Grove Church
