Polegreen

Contributor: Margaret Hancock

Contemplative spaces. Houses of worship. Architectural wonders. Historic sites.

These are the reflective places that we as a society need most and yet cannot currently access.

Except for the Historic Polegreen Church.

Located in Hanover, Virginia just twelve miles outside of Richmond, Historic Polegreen delineates the site of a church lost in the Civil War and commemorates the complex history of religious freedom. The silhouette structure designed by Carlton Abbott, FAIA, sits amidst a secluded, rural setting and invites a quiet walk, a look to the skies, and a visual marvel of how successfully man can intersect with nature. 

Open sunrise to sunset daily.
