Historic Reflection

I always like it when I can get a great reflection picture. This is one of my favorites.

My caption for this picture is Historic Reflection.

Old St. Raymond's Church

Historic Reflection

The Old St. Raymond Church building was built in 1859 and is the oldest Catholic church building in Alameda County, California. The building is now part of the Dublin Heritage Center in Dublin, California.

A window in the Old Murray Schoolhouse reflects the church building along with a majestic Eucalyptus tree.

Behind the schoolhouse and church building is the Dublin Pioneer Cemetery. One of the first people buried in the cemetery was Tom Donlon who fell to his death while helping build the church building. Many notable members of the Dublin community were buried in the cemetery. As you walk through the cemetery and read the names on the tombstones, you also find out that many of the streets and schools in the town were named after early Dublin residents.

Whenever I see this picture, I stop and reflect on the history of Dublin.

  1. Wow! To me, the window looks like four separate images that all join to create one large image. What a beautiful shot!

    I never thought of catching a photo like that, I might give that a try, I really like that. It’s interesting on how church’s play an important role in geneology research. There’s a lot of info on those headstones.
