Valley View Union Chapel

While on my way through Luzerne County back on 8-31-2013, I stumbled on this beautiful wooden church and I thought to myself, "Fred Yarnel would have stopped to shoot this".  When he was alive, Fred was known for his shots of Mills, Barns, Covered Bridges and especially wooden churches in primarily the Western PA and Ohio areas.
