POINT OF INTEREST "B"
As you exit the cemetery, take a quick right, then a left, into the alley. Follow the alley
and at the first intersection turn left (north). Continue to W. 2nd Street and turn right (east).
Stop at the corner of Mozart St. (As you walk along W. 2nd St., imagine what this part
of town must have looked like in the early years when it was covered in grapevines.)
 

Notice the churches on your left and right. Churches show the vitality of the religious culture of the area. Like the churches of their German homeland, churches of the early settlements were built on hills, and their steeples can be seen from miles around. Two examples are St. George Catholic Church, circa 1850 (on the right) and St. Paul United Church of Christ, circa 1846 (on the left). Notice too, that the steeple on St. George Church is on the side of the building. The original church was built on the top of the hill facing north. When it was time to enlarge the church, the only way to build was onto the west side of the old church. The congregation chose to keep the original steeple where it was rather than erect one at the new entrance to the church.
