Take a Photo at Old Christ Church

Dating back to the 1770s, there aren’t many places of worship like Old Christ Church remaining in the United States. Resting just outside Laurel, this historic church has quite the history in southern Delaware and still holds services during the summer months. So not only can you get your photo taken here, but you can also attend an 18th century church service during much of the year. Just remember, there’s no air conditioning or even electricity here. The church remains in its original 1772 state.
