This is a beautiful representation of always remembering God first. There is a Golden Hand that points toward the sky. The entire town has interesting historical facts.

We enjoyed touring the Presbyterian church. I had always wanted to go inside and it was so pretty, especially the windows. I was surprised that it was open to the public.
