Land o' Lincoln

Lincoln Massachusetts, that is. A Greek Revival church in the snow - white on white. Not much color, but magnificent form.
This church is the byproduct of a split in the the Puritan Orthodoxy leading to the Congregationalist camp and the Unitarian camp. The Unitarians left in a huff and de-camped into their spiffy new building in the late 1840's. It was an appropriate style for a humanistic values group.
Today they have merged back together and are one small happy family.
