North Zion Lutheran Church, Baldwin Borough

North Zion Lutheran Church is about a mile due south of Zion Lutheran Church in Baldwin Borough. Father Pitt will leave worrying about the cardinal directions to foreigners; Pittsburghers expect everything to be turned upside-down or sideways. The main part of the little church was built in 1859, and the congregation that inhabits it has been here for more than two centuries. Burials in the graveyard adjacent go back to 1812, but the earliest legible tombstones seem to be from the 1840s.

Little country churches make delightful two-color postcards, so old Pa Pitt has given these same pictures the old-postcard treatment over at Two-Color World.

Camera: Olympus E-20n.
