Lade Church is believed to be one of Norway's oldest stone churches. It is unknown when when it was exactly built, but people started using it around 1190. The current church is assumed to be the successor of two other churches, which are believed to have been one stone church and one stave church. During the wars with Sweden and later during World War II, the church was used as a food stock. There is actually a swastika scribed in a stone in the wall near the Altar.

Lade Church is a long church and it seats 160 people. The nave is 16.5 by 10.7 metres. The Altarpiece dates from 1709 when it was received as a gift from Ellen Rovert from the nearby Lade Gård estate.

5/5 ble ikke trukket ned i jorda under tilbakekomsten av de døde. Akkurat sånn en kirkegård skal være.

Se siente el espíritu de Dios y el pastor es muy amable.

Гарна, маленька і затишна церква. Протестантська, відкрита тільки тоді коли служба служиться, весілля або відспівують покійних.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
