Meetinghouse Photos: Through a Window Darkly, Sugar Grove Meeting, Indiana

These benches look so uncomfortable. Did you actually sit on them?

@ Robin -- yes, I have, though not on this occasion. I shot this through the old wavy glass window. The benches are not as quite as uncomfortable as they look, actually. The addition of a pad would be helpful, though!

Hello Brent. I have some ancestors who attended church at Sugar Grove and are buried in the cemetery there. I kinda feel the church is an extended part of my family.

I've got to say though, while cushions would be nice, I'm sure the older Quakers back then would have scoffed at the idea.

The bench pews at Fairfield are quite comfortable. I've not been in the old Sugar Grove meeting house yet.
