Arvon Presbyterian Church: Burned

Many Slate River Rambling readers may recall that, on January 15, 2009, the Sanctuary of Arvon Presbyterian Church was destroyed by fire. The attached annex was spared major damage. Built in 1885, the church was a Buckingham County treasure.

Fortunately, it has been rebuilt as closely as possible to the original design. On Palm Sunday, April 1, 2012, services were resumed at the church, once again scheduled for the first and third Sundays of each month.

Arvon Presbyterian Church has a wonderful website, which also features histories for Fork Union and Trinity churches. Click here for Arvon Presbyterian Church.

A stunning gallery picturing the fire is also available at the website: Arvon Fire.

Many thanks to Pastor Joe Allmond for getting in touch with Slate River Ramblings and sharing these details.
