downstairs where the pews used to been

Remember last summer when I did the big entry about the dilapidated church in Chesterville, Illinois?



And then I discovered this spring that the roof had collapsed from the weight of winter snow?



I'm sad to report, it's completely gone now.



In fact, all that's left is the basement






The owner of the property was outside when I stopped to take these new photos.  He informed me that he had just had it torn down last Wednesday.  I know it would've fallen down on its own eventually anyway, but it's still sad to see it go.  It was a familiar sight on the side of the road on my many trips to Arthur.  That corner will always look so empty now.
