One thing you might not know about me
is that I am a wanderlust. I love hitting the highway
and exploring new areas.
I had the recent pleasure of discovering this gem in
my own state!
It is a 17th century church originally built in London, England!
It was painstakingly dismantled and transported to
Fulton, Missouri in the 1960's.
The name of the church is The Church of St. Mary of Aldermanbury.
It was twice destroyed by fire and bombed during WWII.
In 1946 Winston Churchill came to Westminster College
in Fulton, MO and gave a speech.
It was suggested that the church be reconstructed here
as a monument to that occasion.
It was dismantled and every piece numbered to move to
it's new location. By the time it arrived it was all mixed up
and it was like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.
There is a museum built below the church that we
also toured. It was so very awe inspiring.
The inside has been beautifully rebuilt and I was
in awe of the woodcarving.
These columns were amazing as you can still see the cracks
where they were broken from the bombing.
It was a very fascinating trip and if you ever get
a chance to go to Fulton, don't miss this
Thanks for letting me share my experience with you.
Have a most wondrful day!
