A Pacific Northwest Photography Blog


Rural churches are often used for decades.

in the tiny old,

western Washington coal mining town of Wilkerson,

the well maintained royal blue cupola of the Holy Trinity Orthodox church

can be seen over the roof tops

of the homes in a residential neighborhood.

:  :  :

Built in 1900,

it became the permanent home of a Russian Orthodox parish,

serving the needs of miners and their families then and now over a century later.

:  :  :

The church is small,

about the same footprint of many of the homes surrounding it,

which once were company supplied housing for the miners,

it is about twenty by forty foot

and I’d guess-estimate the bell tower to rise about

I so enjoy rural churches, and though

I have never had the opportunity to attend a service here,

but if ever in town on a Sunday

at the right time,
