A little ways past the cemetery on Ingraham Hill, there's an abandoned building.

I'm not sure what it was.  At first I assumed "barn", but it looks more like some kind of former residence, especially since there's a big concrete raised porch area on the front of the building, and the last I knew, cows weren't particularly keen on climbing stairs.  And there's no barn door per se; just regular people-sized doors on the front and back.  Then I thought "church", but there's no steeple on top.

I tried to peek in through the cracks, but it was a bright sunny day and the building was boarded up, so all I could see was this:

So then I got the brilliant idea of sticking my camera in and hitting the flash (durrrrrr ... I'm a little slow on the uptake):

I dunno guys, what do you think?  The woodwork and the ceiling (the parts that hadn't collapsed, at least) look a little fancy for a barn ... and it IS just up the road from the cemetery ... was it a church?  Something else?  I'd love to find out.

Wow, if not a church didn't they have meeting houses and grange halls and such. Neat old building.

Yeah, a Quaker meeting house wouldn't have a cross. Could also be a school.

My guess it is a church. I am a Quaker and yes, we would not have had a cross. ;-)
