Job's Temple

The West Virginia State Folk Festival ends with a religious ceremony at the historic Job's Temple. Begun in 1860 and completed after the Civil War, this hand-hewn log church building is the oldest in the county. Built with local poplar trees and clay chinking, the church is 9.5 miles from Glenville on West Virginia Route 5 West. A paved driveway, parking lot and picnic shelter are available for easy access.

The kerosene lamps were ready for the 10:30 A.M. service.

The hymnals were in place. Notce the comfortable seats!

Here come the WV State Folk Festival Belles!

Bob Carpenter was in charge of singing the old hymns. He is a wonderful singer.

The fellow below in the white shirt and on the right is Gordon Rhinehart. Gordon was this year's speaker.

It is a wonderful time in sharing this experience with the Belles.
