Getting Hitched

Updated: Jun 19, 2019


/.Many a person has been hitched at Blawenburg Church…and many a horse, too! This old pipe in the side yard is still there today as a reminder of the days when horses and buggies wansportation. The last sheds were removed in 1959 to make way for Cook Hall, the building behind the church.ere the main source of travel along Georgetown-Franklin Turnpike. There were sheds on the church property for many years to accommodate parishioners (and their horses and buggies) in bad weather, but they were removed over time as cars became the predominate mode of travel.

I have a good story to tell about those horse posts and the steel pipe that runs horizontally between them.  When I was a young teenager we played army at night there and I was running around bent over and could not see the pipe in the dark.  I looked between the posts and was sure it was one of those sections that had missing pipe...  I caught it right on the bridge of my nose: instantly laid me on my back staring up and hearing bells.  I went over to the Hartshorne's house to look at my nose in the mirror.  It's just a little bent out of shape.
