Title

The Church By the Side of the Road

Description

The sign in front of the church reads: "By the side of the road I shall build a wayside shrine / Stone by stone I shall rear it and leave it there / It may be that someone whose need is as great as mine / May seek it and find new comfort and strength in Prayer." This is attributed to Grace Noll Crowell. On the back: "Non-denominational Church, Wagon Wheel Lodge, Rockton, Illinois. All donations distributed to charity and needy families." The church is located on South Blackhawk Boulevard at School Street in Rockton.
