This Powder Box Church was so pretty. When you look across the town and see this church, it just draws you in to go and visit. Great story and a must visit.

It's cool, the history is neat. It would be even more cool if you could go inside. I understand it's a vacation home but maybe you could make your payments back if it were open to public for a fee..?

This building is now a private residence surrounded by 'Italian cemetery trees'. Can only be seen from afar. Building stands out amongst the town. It is on the road to the State Park Museum which offers a nice view of the building. Cannot go inside.

The church is now a private residence and can only be viewed from a distance. Still, it's beautiful and worth taking a peek at if you head out to Jerome State Park.
