What is so unusual about the steeple -- other than the flying buttresses at the corners?

Oh, absolutely! Now this is a treasure. What town is this in?

Thanks ... it's lovely from the outside ... a nice spire always gets my attention!

I've never really thought about it, but there are a lot of churches just in huron county alone.

The steeple isn't necessarily unusual; but it IS beautiful, and very commanding!

I just noticed something. Look at the inset trefoil on the side of the tower, and the bands of Greek crosses about halfway up the wall.
