First Congregational Church Key West Fl
USA

1892 was the year the congregation was formed and the corner stone of the church was laid one year later in 1893. Brick was used very little in the Florida Keys. Bricklaying was not a trade to be found in the keys. Most building were made from wood, as you can see in the pano. This makes this building special in the city. The church was bulit during the richest period in Key Wests history. When this building was built the city was an island city with travel to and from via ship only.

    Really great memories here. My grandpa pastored this church in the 80's and that white conch house to the right was my very first home. Love this picture.

    More About USA

    The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
