Old Swedes Church | Wilmington, Delaware

I finally got the chance to go check Old Swedes Church in Wilmington, Delaware the other weekend. Thank you to my friend Jerry, (over at Vandyll.net) for keeping me company while I wandered. Old Swedes is the oldest church in the US, built in 1698 by descendants of the Swedish colonists who crossed the Atlantic aboard the Kalmar Nyckel in 1638. A small and quaint church with a regular number of parishioners around 40. Worth a visit, but I wish I had a little bit more time to spend there. The following is a series of photos from the inside of the church. I have some from walking through the cemetery, as well, that I'll do at a later time. For what ever reason it wasn't a great photo day, so they are not great... let's just consider them documentary!

Look like they have a nice pipe organ there, V. I think my fave shot is the 3rd from the bottom. The light.

Would you permit me to use the church photo in my persoal genealogy? The photos are beautiful. Several of my grand parents were married in this church. Thanks, Hazel
