An Old Church in Simsbury, CT

An old church in Simsbury, CT. The origins of this church go back to 1697! In my mind I can see it in the middle of nowhere but instead it is surrounded by modern technology. Power lines, traffic lights and of course cars surround this beautiful building.

“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”

    I have always loved history and in this country, to have a building that old blows our minds. But in Europe, they have buildings that are many centuries older than ours. I always wonder what tourists think when visiting NY and New England. Doing my genealogy has given me such a personal view of churches and village greens. Like you, I close my eyes and imagine them standing tall on the village green. I love living in our time period, but can’t help but think that we’ve lost something with our cars and electric poles and fast food places surrounding these historic sights.
