Here's an artifact of a building I spotted as soon as we drove into town. We stood on the corner for a while, pondering over it. It's in a strange, rambling craftsman/tudor style that I've never seen used on a place of worship. Turns out it's listed on the National Register for Historic Places, and it was built in 1916. More after the jump...

The thing that struck me most was the steeple - or rather, the lack of one. I felt like there should have been more to it. And behold, I was not wrong:
I found the above picture on the church's Facebook page - that's right - and it shows the building shortly after its construction in the early 20th century. Apparently the steeple was torn down during the 1950s.

Here's a shot of the church from the inside, taken recently, and found on the FB page. There's more, if you go through the wall photos.
