Fleetwood Church in Brandy Station, (Culpeper County, Virginia) was built circa 1880, and was possibly a Methodist house of worship. I was unable to find much of anything regarding this structure. It appears to be abandoned and, if not, sorely neglected. The church is a wood structure with a steep-pitched metal roof. The dominant feature is the tower/steeple. It curiously extends to the right beyond the width of the main structure. There are 3 sections to this tower. The lowest section contains the entrance to the church and above that a sign that reads “Fleetwood”. The center section is decorated in fish-scale shingles (possibly made of wood); the side facing the front has a circle within the design of a cross. Above this is the steeply pitched shingled roof with small simple brackets in the cornice. The entry is red with double doors, approached by wooden steps and railing (a possible addition). There are no windows on the front façade, but there is another sign, undecipherable.
