In the 1930s, the townspeople who lived in the mining town of Jerome, Arizona built a church out of discarded timbers from the mine shafts and something else quite unusual — dynamite boxes. Years later, Tom and Ann Gale purchased the dilapidated building, restoring it for use as their weekend and summer home.
The former church sits all alone in a valley where there used to be a thriving Hispanic community.
For this couple's newly created horseshoe court, a proper seating area is in order.
