Church Steeple

The steeple on the Courtland, Minnesota church is looking for a good home. It was built in the late 1800’s, it’s bigger than it looks at about 60 feet tall from the roof. The bell will be placed in the new church, but the steeple remains. The intention is to remove this structure in two parts. Imagine this on the corner of your house!The church itself is a “stick-frame” pine construction with square nails. It was remodeled in the 1960’s — replacing some of the big beams with modern glue-lams. The rest of the church is also available for salvage if anyone is interested.

UPDATE: The church and steeple were dismantled in 2007. There was an offer to transport the steeple by helicopter to a gentleman’s property. However, details just could not be worked out in time. It was broken up and parts sold off.
