Here she was on February 9, 2012 overgrown and abandoned.
Here is all that remains on this day.
This sad stairway used to lead to the church.
|How many brides came down these steps to start a new life? How many mourners walked up them to say goodbye? How many potluck dinners, baptisms, choir practices? When did people stop using these steps?|
I had taken one of my favorite photos in this building back in February.
Aside from the front steps, not much remains of the main sanctuary. Just a hint of a brick cornerstone and some wall beams.
A crumbling stone and brick foundation covered in packed soil and pine stained clay.
And a few shards of window glass.
I'm so glad I took photos when I did. I have taken a lot of pictures of old buildings over the past year since getting my big girl camera. I knew those buildings would not stand forever in their state. I did not expect, however, one to fall so soon.
