Hidden...



It's hard to imagine how I could have driven/walked past this little gem of a building countless times and never seen it! I just found it the other day and I was thrilled - it's a beautiful building, trimmed in my favorite color. It's tucked in behind a couple of other houses, and partially covered by that gorgeous, big tree, which is how I've missed seeing it before. (I know - lame excuses! If there's one thing that I am really learning by doing this blog, it's to be more observant of my own town!) It appears that it is just being used as a shed now, and I wonder if they built it, or if it's an abandoned old church or meeting house. At least it appears as if someone is taking good care of it. Isn't that chimney interesting looking?


Tomorrow I'll show you what's up on the tippy top...

It looks like an old church. I would be interested to know who built it!

This pretty building looks like something from Little House on the Prairie, a combined school house, church, and town hall.

We have an old one-room schoolhouse in our town that looks a lot like that.

Nice photos, by the way. You're a true artist.

Beautiful--it does look like an old, but well taken care of, church. Lets see what's in the bell tower.

I read the article about the accident. TRAGIC!! It wouldn't let me comment there. MB

There's always something a bit sad, though, about a former church. In Arkansas I saw how the old Methodist church was officially "deconsecrated" before it was allowed to become something else.
"Old" church means something way different here in Jerusalem. :)
