ALBION – It was breathtaking sunset today around 5 p.m. I took several photos of the churches around Courthouse Square as the sky changed colors and grew more intense.

The top photo shows St. Joseph’s Catholic Church (Holy Family Parish) at left with First Baptist Church towering even higher at right.

The seven churches by the courthouse are part of a district named to the National Register of Historic Places.

Here is one of the Orleans County Courthouse, the focal point of the historic district.
