Ackman Church

We still need a volunteer to help organize our church archive files.  Is anyone interested in helping make a county map of these churches' locations ? Copies of church histories and photos of churches or congregations are always welcome. You may send pictures by email, or  stop by the Genealogical Library in Bridgeport and allow us to scan them on Tues or Thurs. (2-4pm).

This photo of Ackman Chapel was found in the church file with the notation that is was located "south- west of Wayne  Leighty's home.  Broadhollow School set on the corner across from the Church."  Another handwritten note says: "vandals broke in and destroyed the pews , then burned the church. It was across from the Geo. Leighty Farm.  Broadhollow school was about 1/4 mile north of the Chapel." Does anyone else have any information about this church?
