Forty Martyrs Church, Tuscola, Illinois


The exterior of Forty Martyrs Parish in Tuscola, Illinois.


The architecture is classic basilica style and looks very much like something right out of northern Italy. All it needs is a bit of mosaic work.
The woodwork surrounding the tabernacle is splendid.

One detail I particularly like from the high altar.

And just when you think you've seen it all, you see something else. This was across from the church at what, I think, is the courthouse.
