      Matt,

      There was, after the original church blew down in a windstorm in the early 1920s, a snack stand on the site. Could the shingle be from that building?

      > The Civil War museum I head has a wooden shingle that is supposed to be from the original Dunker Church. It has a painting of the Church on it which was painted and signed by a member of the Mumma family. I can only speak for the shingles though.
