A 116 Year Old Nokesville VA Church Lives On

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections
No matter where you drive in Prince William County you never know when you will pass an old church. The good news is that they are being preserved by caring members of the denomination or specific church itself such as Pohick Church in Lorton VA.

Unlike most areas of Prince William County, the Nokesville area is still primarily rural. It's easy to mentually visualize the days when Asbury Church was both the religious and social center of the area.

Hi Karen I see you have a love for the preservation of the historical buildings as I do. I see the Herndon last name on the plaque do you think the city of Herndon VA. is name from the same family?

Cynthia  I suspect it might - there are numerous names on plaques that pop up all over the place and many of them are interlocked

Hi Karen, I'm with you!  I think it is great that these old churches can be preserved.  I really enjoy the wide variety of all the shapes and sizes of these older churches in your area!
