The Methodist Tower

Selma is known for its beautiful downtown church spires, and here
.
 Methodists have worshipped at this location since 1835 on land set aside
 in 1817 by the Selma Land Company. However, this is the third structure.
 It was built in 1901 to replace an 1853 sanctuary that sustained 
extensive damage when its steeple was toppled by a storm
 and landed point down at the altar. Over a century later,
 this spire is holding up just fine!

Linking to ABC Wednesday where the Letter of the Week is M.
