Check out the inside of this church! Known as the Liberty Meeting House and later as the Mountain Cove Baptist Church. Still has the old bell in the tower. They say it can still be heard when a burial is happening in a nearby cemetery. Hope that is intentional?? LOL. Built in 1850. There has to be old pictures of it online somewhere, will start looking. Two bedrooms, one bath, and 1,000 square feet. Located on right under 1/2 acre. Close to Wintergreen and Crabtree Falls. $139,500

From the Zillow listing:

This quaint cottage dating Cr. 1850, known as “Liberty Meeting House” and later as “Mountain Cove Baptist Church”, was the only place of worship in the Lovingston area at that time. A bell hangs from its rafters in the tower and can still be heard ringing when there is a burial in the nearby cemetery. Huge oaks with perennial ground coverings surround this timeless and gracious, low maintenance home. Decorate with your antiques and enjoy features of heart pine floors, high ceilings, and 6 ft. windows with stained glass. Great location w/fishing, hiking & hunting nearby. Enjoy local breweries, wineries, distilleries, Wintergreen, Crabtree Falls, & Lock-in Musical Festival. Convenient to US 29, Charlottesville & Lynchburg. Sold “As Is.”
