I originally thought was built for another congregation and might have had another steeple, but Eileen Dudley notes that it was built this way. Eileen is the program manager for Historic Twin City and is largely responsible for getting National Register status for the city. Please visit this unique little town if you find yourself in the area and before you go, be sure to like Historic Twin City on Facebook for more information:
