I was in Lansing recently and I decided to take the long way home and drive through some towns I have never visited. I went through the beautiful town of Portland and I saw this old wooden church on the other side of the river from downtown. I had to stop and take a photo of it. It did not have a name and it seemed out of place like it was moved to that location. I have not had time to contact anyone in Portland about but I did find an old photo. I think it is the church but it must have lost the pointy part of its steeple sometime throughout its life.
Of course whatever someone had written at the bottom of the print was cut off. I think it was the Baptist church built in 1877. The beautiful little church stands separated from downtown, patiently waiting for someone to notice it.
P.S. I did not have time to explore Portland as I wanted. I will have to make another trip back there soon.
