When people picture Vermont, they see the covered bridges, the mountains and the foliage. But let’s talk architecture for a moment. There are some churches that are both historic and amazing (and sometimes simplistic) in their design. No matter what your beliefs are, these churches certainly make a statement. Let’s explore, shall we?
