We were in the area and saw the signs for the tree festival. We are so pleased we visited as there was a beautiful display. Refreshments available too.

Beautiful church and full of history. I discovered in 1995 that a family with my maiden name had their baby baptized here in the 1500's and since I have been able, through research and DNA testing, to become highly confident that this is indeed a...More
