Scenes from the Fourth Rome: Northern Neck edition

Took a drive to the Northern Neck and back on Saturday, here are some photos of the trip. Enjoy!

Here’s a monument to William Atkinson Jones in Warsaw, VA, the great congressman from the First District who sponsored the Philippine Autonomy Act:photo 5

The following three are of Vauter’s Church (and the photo at the top is of the pulpit and altar inside).

The hand stamps at Lancaster County Court Days were pretty awesome:

Next was Christ Church Lancaster County, a truly remarkable, beautiful building built by Robert (King) Carter and completed in 1735:

Note the three-tiered pulpit; clerk’s desk, then a lectern for Bible reading, and a roost for the preacher at the top:

Lastly, a well deserved stop at Tides Inn. Here’s a picture of their delicious poke:
