  1. ridiculous! this is a beautiful church just off the aa hwy between foster ky and california ky. yes it is there. no, there is no loft in this church that i can tell from the outside. and no signs of a fire or repair from a fire.

  2. This church still stands. My brother and I visited the grave yard while doing some family research. My brother took a picture of the church. We didn’t notice the apparitions in the window until we got home and were looking at the pictures we had taken. The church couldn’t of burned down.
