SHARPSBURG adamb@herald-mail.com The last two members of the Tolson Chapel congregation closed the doors of the small, wooden building in Sharpsburg 10 years ago. When Edith Wallace reopened that door five years later, the chapel seemed frozen in time. "We opened the door and the Bible was still open on the table," Wallace said. The red-shingled building on East High Street closed in 1995 as a church. It wasn't until 2000 that Wallace discovered the building.

marlob@herald-mail.com When Willard and Mary Graves first got involved in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel at St. Maria Goretti four years ago, they may not have been expecting miracles but they think they got one nonetheless. "A lady who was writing poetry to Jesus during her visit to the chapel took a picture of the (vessel) that holds the Eucharist and when her film was developed, there were rays of light emanating from it," Willard Graves said. Countless flash pictures have been taken both before and after the "miraculous" 2003 photo and nothing even close has ever shown up, he said.

marlob@herald-mail.com Three years ago, a group of Spanish-speaking Seventh-day Adventists began meeting at the Hagerstown Seventh-day Adventist Church on Robinwood Drive, conducting their services in the language of their birth. "We started looking for a church to rent two years ago and we found the Wesleyan Church at 17805 Sherman Ave.," said Pastor Juan Carlos Sicalo through an interpreter, Linda DeLeon, a member of the congregation. In early December, the congregation - which now numbers about 70 - took the final step and bought the building.

Editor's note: The following story about the former Fort Ritchie U.S. Army Base is one in an occasional series of stories about some of the treasures of Washington County's past.
