buildings in manchester

Before I left Manchester I drove around the streets in the center of town.  I like to see the architecture in smaller towns.  In the very center of the town sits the courthouse.  In front of the courthouse are memorial stones presented to commemorate the fallen soldiers in each of the major wars fought here and abroad starting with the Revolutionary War.  It was very moving to read the words of dedication written on these stones.  It is good to remember what has gone on before us and what is happening now.  Later I drove by a church that had a very interesting steeple.  I had to take a picture before I hit the road.  The weather was looking quite chance-y and I feared a storm was a-brewing.  It was.
