I posted about this church September 2013 (Church at the intersection of Route 9 and Route 301). At the time I couldn’t find out any more information about it. Today I was browsing around in Cold Spring and leafed through this book: Around Cold Spring by Trudie A. Grace when I noticed a picture. It was the same church. The caption reads:

McKeel’s Corners Chapel, ecumenical (1867), at the corner of Route 9 and Route 301, was a Methodist church until the early 1900s, serving farmers and others. The vertical clapboard Carpenter Gothic building has a steeply sloped roof, high pointed window arches, and wooden tracery in the front. A nearby cemetery predates the church. The Mckeel family was one of the oldest in the area (Photgraph by Jan Thacher, courtesy of PCHS).
