I had heard of the “Ark” before — and since it wasn’t far off of my route home from West Virginia, I decided to seek it out. It has been in progress since 1976!

Though it’s just off the Frostburg Exit of 68 in Maryland, finding the actual entrance was a bit hard — some street signs had been vandalized at the end of the road and pointed in the opposite direction — but I eventually found it.

Pulling in to take the picture was a bit weird because there were about 25 cars in the parking lot and I believe a service was in progress —  I could hear singing from the “church” building beside the Ark (this was on a Friday afternoon, no less). I didn’t want to seem disrepectful in taking the pic, nor did I want to be approached by the “followers”. I snapped the photo quickly and away I went.
