Bear Creek Church
So we were exploring the back roads of Alabama when lo & behold we drove by Bear Creek Church. A tree had fallen on the backside of the church recently. One of the limbs is still lodged inside the back of the church. You can see a shot through the window. Someone has cleaned it up pretty good. I hope they continue to restore it, but, it doesn't look promising.
Every now & then there's that moment at 4:00 A.M. when your eyes pop open because you know there is an amazing explore just waitingfor you. That'swhat happened here. I knew of this church, but had never been to it before.
Travelling in Alabama, I was headed somewhere else when I noticed this church from the Interstate.

It was initially incorporated in 1839 (although two other sources claim 1825 and 1835) and briefly served before that as the first county seat of Pickens County. Carrollton was designated as the seat in the early 1830s.
