Saving A Pre Civil War African-American Church

Kudos to the Frontier Culture Museum for saving this very important piece of Shenandoah Valley history:
The one-room building, on Round Hill School Road, was once one of many black schoolhouses in Augusta County, and it was also a church. And until about 10 years ago, it was still used by members of Mount Tabor as a social hall. Today, not many of these old structures stand.
As an aside, this building was located very close to the Piedmont battlefield.  Complete story here.
