Beautiful old structure. You can feel the spirit of the church. It was closed for renovations we did not get to do a tour. Great spot for photos.

Very worthwhile visit. First time we could not enter but outside still amazing even though under a long-term restoration. The all wood construction is amazing.
Very good experience. The wooden structure is great. The guide fry eye does his job very well. The owner Otis does a great job at making sure everything goes smoothly
