A Neighborhood Church with Some Seriously Interesting History

It was foggy and cold this morning when I took the dog out for a walk and I was just trudging along without any enthusiasm until we came to the First AME Zion Church.  Tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood that is well off of the beaten path, the presence of the church always comes as a surprise to me. I think the church is beautiful and this morning surrounded by fog it looked even better.  The history of this church is fascinating and I encourage you to check it out on the church website.  Just click on "links" and then A.M.E Zion history.  I am pretty sure they serve breakfast on Saturday mornings to people in need but I couldn't find that in writing any place.

I think I've posted a picture of this before but
this morning in the fog, with the Christmas lights
it was quite a sight.

"Foggy and cold?" Weren't you just making fun of a similar phrase on my blog? Anyway, nice pictures.

Looks like it just got a paint job. I think this is a City Landmark.
