I walked around this area at sunset and it was gorgeous. I couldn't read most of the headstones so bring a flashlight if you'll be there later. The church is stunning and the stained glass is quite amazing.

When we drove through Columbia city, this beautiful church drew our attention and we decided to pull over and visit. The main chamber is magnificent and a gentleman introduced the history to us. The yard is nice, good for party and ceremony.
