First United church and the duck pond falls

As anyone who has followed me for a while one of my favorite spots in Milford, other than the beaches on a nice day is the Duck Pond Falls area in downtown Milford and the First United Church which I will feature in this post, its such a beautiful church and so striking especially on a fall day when the crisp white building is surrounded by fall colors as I share for the first shot.

Since i have a few trees in these shots, let me also make this an entry for Tree Tuesday hosted by @old-guy-photos

The church itself has an interesting history, the First Church of Christ in Milford was established in New Haven in 1639 by a group of settlers led by Rev. Peter Prudden.
They already had acquired land in Wepawaug, where they would shortly settle and establish the new parish and colony of Milford.
The first meeting house was built in 1641 and was replaced by a second structure in 1727-1728. The current church, featured in this post, was built in 1824, and Designed by David Hoadley, A division in church membership during the Great Awakening in 1741 led to the errection of the Second Church (Plymouth Church). The two churches reunited in 1961 as the First United Church of Christ (Congregational).

you may wonder what the Great Awakening was, well I did so this is what I found onit

The Great Awakening was a religious revival that impacted the English colonies in America during the 1730s and 1740s. The movement came at a time when the idea of secular rationalism was being emphasized, and passion for religion had grown stale. Christian leaders often traveled from town to town, preaching about the gospel, emphasizing salvation from sins and promoting enthusiasm for Christianity. The result was a renewed dedication toward religion. Many historians believe the Great Awakening had a lasting impact on various Christian denominations and American culture at large.

And this is the view of it I love the most looking across the Duck pond and catching reflections, the inside of the church is also very beautiful, they invited me there to do a presentation on photography one, but I haven't taken any photos inside the church yet.

I love reflections of all kinds, and the reflection of the church in this pond is amazing.

Nevertheless, the last photo is my favorite, because I love the nice waterfall with these dark rocks at the bottom and the geese and autumn leaves on top in the foreground, as well as I like this beautiful little church in the background 😊

Even though that church reflection shot is great, the other shots all also great my friend. Typical JJ style and I am looking forward to your shots once you are settled in the new place.
Blessings!

Thanks My friend will still be here for a few months, but looking forward to new adventures

As long as you are okay, we are okay my friend.
Blessings to you guys!

I try my best to be always ok :)

Good! No need for us to worry then my friend!
Blessings!

So true
What do you think of the new look of Steemit?

One word her my friend! "Confusing"
I have managed to sort my blog situation out as nobody told us that if you post in another front end, that you should resteem your post to appear in your steemit blog. They are only recorded in the "Posts" section.
So, from today all of my posts will appear in the "Blog" again.
Blessings!

It is very confusing for sue and I wish they had done a post explaining what the changes all were, I guess now the focus is on communities which I have hardly looked at but clearly need to

Is that place real ?? Looks like a fairy tale painting. So beautiful @tatoodjay

Ohh yes its real :) 👍🙂👍

What I would say as "picture perfect". Great great photos.

So nice of you to say

I just submitted my entry to your Wednesday Walk Challenge. Click here for the link. Hope you like it.

I saw your post thanks for joining the Walk :)

Hi @tattoodjay, I love your photos of this beautiful church. I would love to walk inside and have a good look around.

It is beautiful snide i have bene there a couple of times but never took photos

Oh my gosh that duck pond falls is beautiful! Very nice shots! It was nice that you included some history on the church :)

As you may have noticed i love this spot often walk by there

Ah yes! After I read your comment I went back to view some of your posts. Maybe it’s the different angles you capture every time you go but you bring out a different beauty every time. I enjoyed it today as if it was the first time I seen it ;)

Thanks I guess a lot depends on the season and my mood for what angles come to me to get shots of :)

Have a great day

What a cool old building! We have one kind of similar to this near where my grandma used to live. It is much smaller scale though. I like that old style of church with the high steeple and the white exterior.

Thanks I do love ho classy this old church looks
