Ballenger Church
Shortly after the formation of St. Anne's Parish in 1745, this established church stood on a knoll 100 yards north on nearby Ballenger Creek. Not used regularly after the old parish was dissolved in 1785, the building was in ruins by 1820 and was totally abandoned.

Found along a country road heading to Hatton Ferry. The location described appears to be in what is now a farm field.
