    Re: Church Steeple

    I read this on one of the comments about another town.

    When the community can no longer take care of it’s church, the last parishiners remove the steeple and place it in the cemetary where it remains with it’s people, forever.

    I owned this church for 5+ years in the 1990′s, with hopes of renovating it for an art studio. Purchase price $700. I patched the roof, fixed many broken windows, cleared it of debris. The view from the steeple is fantastic! Sold it a few years later.. My friend Kay bought the house with the blue roof, in hopes of rescuing it. The water table had risen so much in town that her foundation was shot.
