tilting away from religion

If you use the definition of ghost town as “so far off the beaten path that there’s no Google street view”, this place fits the criteria.

And there’s also this church, with the cross taking a decided tilt toward the north. (“What does the inside of the church look like?” you should be asking yourself. Good thing I can help with that totally not at all self-serving sentence.)

A business opportunity
