Baptist Church

The Baptist Church on Main Street was a popular subject for the postcards. I remember when the House of Pizza was in the basement and the video rental store was on the first floor. Dr. Fred Giaimo had his dentristy paractice here. After the pizza store left it was replaced by the restaurant Gram's Place run by the Kolapakko family. At one time the church was painted blue which was a bit jarring. Once again it is being used as a church, but it has quite a history.

I wonder what camp is being referenced, bible camp?

I took this photo in 2013 with an impending storm, The steeple has a bit of wear over the years.
