Steeples - Athens, Georgia

Much like her classical namesake of Athens, Greece, this northern Georgia city is home to the most distinguished institution of higher education of the state, a vibrant array of different cultures with a blend of the world's religions.  Rising above the tops of the trees, I could pin point the steeples of various temples of worship that I wanted to go see from the City Hall at the west edge of the downtown area.  Just one block south of the City Hall is the First United Methodist church (above) and these images really do not convey how tall that steeple really is!  Two other churches that I found to be unique in design were the First Christian Church at the bottom of the hill on Prince Avenue from the downtown and the Emmanuel Episcopal church, a little further down on Prince near the antebellum mansions of Athens.
