Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church














Hey Friends, long time no see... the hubby & I have started camping again ...so I have stocked up on a few churches and cemeteries ... let's get into sharing. This week I am sharing "Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church, Organized June 16th, 1827" so says the sign beside the front there. I have always loved history, but I think most recently I have really just fell madly in love with all the historical sites we get to see ...the tombstones are so amazing, I wish I could know their story ...I guess I could google them and find out more. Such history. Hope you do enjoy!!! If you ever get the chance to be in Tennessee, Great Smoky Mtns, get back Cades Cove ...you will be amazed by the beauty. Lots to visit and see. Please don't forget your camera. Never a dull moment. Please join us at "InSPIREd Sunday" Hope you are well this week. Be Well & Be Blessed. Thank you for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( ;

...Beth, and here I thought that you had fallen off the face of the earth, what a relief. What a great little white country church.

That church looks simple but I'm sure the worship there was very meaningful.

That is such a simple, primitive, beautiful, plain building.

You found a nice one this week and went inside. It is very basic and I have done across Primitive Baptist Churches here as well

We camped in the Smoky Mtns in the 90s. Drove through Cades Cove but don't remember that church. Amazing headstones too.

These churches with little windows always look strange to me - and I'm always surprised t how much light gets in side!

Now, I just had to google Russell Gregory and here are two of apparently many un confirmed versions of his murder
1) his son was a Confederate and was part of a raiding party which his father had fired on. he told the rebels that it was his father and they later went to his home...
2) angered that some Confederates had shot one of his cattle, Russell confronted them and was then shot himself
whatever the real story, it is certainly in interesting that his stone determines that he was 'murdered' not just 'killed'.

WE find something new and interesting each time we visit the graveyard at Primitive Baptist Church.

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…

North Bend Park, Virginia

North Bend Park, John H. Kerr Dam, Virginia. It was kind of rainy, kind of sunny. partly cloudy. It was a bit iffy, but we still made time to kayaking. Had a ball. The clouds & sun were playing on the waters, what great times to take photos. ( O : =  
This area has so many different campground on different parts of the dam/lake. I believe this is the 3 different one we have visited so far, I'm sure the hubby has the others in the plans for later on... never know what he has up his selves. giggles. ( ; 

Enjoy enjoy the vlog from that day. Thank you for stopping by, do take care. Beth ( :
