    What a beautiful building! I was privileged to officiate at a wedding there some years ago.

    I wonder if he has seen the old Union Meeting House in Readfield, ME? It is a wonder of original Charles Schumacher trompe l’oeil art! Wall sconces that look like you could place a vase of flowers on them – that become totally flat as you get close to them, they are just painted on the wall. A hallway that extends behind the pulpit… a hallway that is not really there, again, painted on the wall… wonderful childhood memories of visiting there with my dad.
