Historical Society Events History

Civil War at Tonoloway

When wallpaper was removed from the walls of historic Tonoloway Church, a number of signatures were found written on the plaster. During the winter of 1861-62, the building served as a Union hospital for wounded soldiers. John Mentzer has identified and written a 140-page book with 50 illustrations based on his research of these signatures. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the continued maintenance of the building. The book is available in McConnellsburg for $25 but mail orders of $28 payable to “Friends of Tonoloway” may be sent to Marlin Douglas, 215 Meadow Lane, Chambersburg, PA 17201. The church will be open the afternoons of October 17-18 to view the signatures. John’s e-mail is or phone (717) 328-9279.
