Kill The Music
By Steve Tweed
Laurel Seminary Church sits at the bottom of a serene field in the Big Laurel Community of Madison County, North Carolina.
The church was organized on December 11, 1897 and services were conducted until the early 1960’s.
I was instantly drawn to the old piano in the corner and while trying to figure out exactly how I wanted to shoot it, noticed the old family barn through the window which was built by family ancestors Thomas Madison Wallin (1867-1939) and his son Stephen Marshall Wallin (1889-1921).
The piano in the solemn, abandoned church inspired the title “Kill The Music”.
