This past weekend I was driving in horse country north of Warrenton, near the village of Hume, and passed this picturesque church, Leeds Church. Its architecture intrigued me – a gothic-type style with no steeple. The sign indicated it was built in 1842. Turns out the church was occupied by both northern and southern soldiers during the Civil War and Lee and Longstreet’s troops marched by on their way to Antietam and Gettysburg. If churches could talk, what stories would it tell? No earthshaking history took place here, but the building looks little changed since the 19th century when enemies on both sides found it a refuge.
