Kerosene lights hanging from the ceiling, his and hers outhouses and two pot-bellied stoves to provide heat during the winter were among the features Downsville Church of the Brethren parishioners George Stumbaugh and Lila Mae Haywood remembered Sunday as the church celebrated its 155th anniversary. “We froze on one side and roasted on the other,” said Haywood, 83, of Hagerstown. The original 1857 church remains part of the current sanctuary, but carpeting now covers the bloodstains that are rumored to be from a Civil War soldier, said Stumbaugh, 80, of Williamsport.
