We went to the church hoping to just pop in but were convinced by the staff to take the tour! Betty, our tour guide, was unbelievable!! Very glad we took the tour! What a great history lesson she gave us!

This place felt a bit off the beaten track but we were glad we found it. We took the tour and felt like we had stepped back in history. Worth a visit.
