The Historic Baldwin Hall was built in 1861 and is a wonderful example of country churches built in that time. Built as a gathering place, it is now listed with the National Register of Historic Places.
With large arched windows, with green shutters, this beautiful building is a beacon for community events.
The gardens are well tended by the Severn Cross Roads Foundation, Inc. With summer blooms in their full glory.
There are two ways to go when you hit that crossroads in your life: There is the bad way, when you sort of give up, and then there is the really hard way, when you fight back. I went the hard way and came out of it okay. Now, I’m sitting here and doing great.

Just love these windows!!
I was fascinated by them and loved how you could see the opposite side came through.
Looks like a terrific location Emily!
I drive by it every day. Funny how one misses things that are right in front of your face. 🙂
Thanks Renee ! Happy Weekend!
The fence photo is splendid! Could you remind me of the name of those flowers? My mother used to grow them in her garden and this photo so reminded me of that sentimental place 🙂
I think this is a type of viburnum. Wish I really knew. Perhaps someone can chirp in with an ID
Thanks! I love how it drapes over the fence, and your composition is wonderful.
Ok..we’re going with snowball Virburnum. I thought that may be it. Glad they captured my eye, as the blooms have already withered just two days later.
Nice shots to support the short, historic narrative, Emily. Question, where is Baldwin Hall?
Hi Tom ! Hope you’re having a fabulous time and the weather is becoming perfect for you. This is in Millersville, Maryland. I love our history around here, but it is nothing compared to where you live.
what a lovely place! the window looks amazing!
Thanks Evi ! One of these days I need to get inside. Supposedly there are glorious chandeliers. 🙂
What a lovely setting!
It’s perfect for a craft fair right?
