Posting a find and a (very poor) photo. My photo was taken as a drive-by, near dusk, and it did not turn out well. I am posting it simply because when I look at it, I can remember the church, the rainy weather, the artshow that was taking place in the city streets downtown, and our visit in general.

Very nice bench mark!

This is our first Benchmark log
My friends were married here.
We visit this location nearly every day

Stopped by this church to log in my first benchmark. I was married here. It is a beautiful place.

Beautiful benchmark. My sister was married at this church.

Don't live to far from it. See it almost every day. My son was born at the hospital next door.

I guess it is time to log this since I see it most every day.

I graduated in this church. It's been destroyed by fire... I wonder if the benchmark was on the new or old building...

Been to a wedding and commencement here--not just another spot on the earth to me.
