    beautiful church and I’m forced to admit it would be a moderate sin to convert this one into a private residence or other type business

    but I admit, I’d be willing to take the risk 😏😆😏

    “massive size” as the description says. This would be a lot to tackle.

    I’m loving the exterior of this great looking church. My mind is wondering about all the bricked up windows and wondering what the interior looked like originally with those windows in place. While I share some of Hearsetrax thoughts, the real sin would be to let this beautiful building sit and deteriorate. It needs to have someone to love this building, whether it’s used as a church or re-purposed. (It would make an incredible home, though!)
