Ketoctin Baptist Church

-A A +A
1853–1854. Intersection of VA 716 and 711, Round Hill vicinity
  • Ketoctin Baptist Church (Virginia Division of Historic Resources)

The setting of the Ketoctin Baptist Church is particularly pastoral, down a county lane in a grove of large trees. This temple-form building displays the simple and straightforward architecture nineteenth-century Baptists preferred. The inactivity of the congregation has eliminated any need to alter the facility, and the interior, with galleries, is largely unchanged. The structure has also benefited from an active maintenance program. The cemetery possesses a fine collection of mid-to-late nineteenth-century funerary art.
