Mr. Snowman goes to church

A snowman built in front of a small church.

This snowman is the lone parishioner of the very historic Central Mine Methodist church.

Central is an old mining location up in Keweenaw County. There are a few permanent (or seasonal) residents, but otherwise most of the town is abandoned. Some of the buildings are restored and cared for by a historical society. This church -- one of the original buildings in town -- is the site of the yearly Central Reunion, in which the descendants of former citizens return for a church service, pasty dinner, and general good times.
