The entire ceiling and walls of this church are beautifully painted in an Italian Renaissance style, like a miniature Sistine Chapel. Upon entering the church, we were greeted by a volunteer who gave us an extremely thorough (and free!) guided tour. The painter of the church was an Italian immigrant, a trained artist, who needed money to bring over his wife and child, and was hired to paint the church in the 1930's. Both the painter and his daughter are hidden in the paintings!

Popped in to have a look - the interior is just gorgeous. Popped in a few dollars towards the restoration project. Worth a look.

The Fresco's in this Church will have you AMAZED from the moment you walk in. The Stain glass windows add to the appeal but you could spend hours in here checking out the paintings.

We visited this beautiful church on the way to lake entrance. The painting in the church is quite amazing. The alter is painted nicely. I am not sure who did the painting, but the work is Godly.
