Rules Are Good But-------
I've wrote about the little country historical church we attend, my picture wouldn't post. It is made of the old sand stone and is a charming old building with history. One side had a built on sunday school room/social hall which some of the members tore down and rebuilt (with no charge) to make it look much better and was able to match the rock very well. The roof attaches on to the orginal in a nicer looking way. They installed central heat and air too. Now the nice men want to take the restrooms off the other side and rebuild them to look nicer. One visitor said that was the first time she had ever used an outhouse with air conditioning. They aren't outhouses but their looks aren't exactly Home And Garden. They want to bring them in up nearer the orginal roof and then match the rock again. They also wanted to take out two windows in the back of the alter since they don't need the air window units any longer. They intended to fill those in with rock to nearly match as they could manage. This is where the Historical Society comes in. They don't want them to take the windows out but will allow them to put in stained glass windows. They don't want to allow them to attach the restrooms to the original building. They can open a door that has been closed for years that goes out that direction and build new restrooms with a breezeway. You might say the heck with them but if they do not go by the rules they stand to lose their status as historical and lose their historical marker. Most wouldn't want to do that as it is an honor to have the historical status. It's all on hold for now.
