Mt. Tabor Church Graveyard,
near Broadfording, United Brethren
The old log church, which used to be off Mt. Tabor Road north of Huyetts Crossroads, was rotting away and was about to be torn down.
Now it has a new home at the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum, where future generations will be able to learn about early life in Washington County.
The Mount Tabor United Brethren Church was organized in 1845 and services were held in a private home, a barn and an old schoolhouse before the church was built in 1853, according to historical accounts.
The church served as a place of worship for more than 140 years, according to historical accounts.
