This is one of the few cool buildings in my town. I know that sounds harsh, but you haven’t seen my town. Most of the homes are newer, uninteresting, ranch houses or small older cottages without a lot of character built probably in 1901 when the majority of the settlers arrived here – settlers who were single men and didn’t need nor could they afford a big, interesting home at the time. The older buildings downtown are architecturally uninteresting as well, although several have some added interest with some fantastic murals that have been painted on them or some interesting facades that have been added within the last ten years or so. That said, this is a very nice small town, with great people, and a great school system. And no single men. Dang it.
About the church building, from the city’s website:
This historical structure has been the site of numerous churches of different denominations over the last century. The local historical society purchased the building to save it from being destroyed, and later sold it to the city for use as a museum. The structure [has been] renovated to restore it to its original architecture.
Heritage Museum is situated in a beautiful setting of old trees, grass and rock walls. It features a large meeting area, kitchen, and public restrooms, and will be ADA-accessible…
