    Hi! I like your site and my daughter, Jan Milliman, has told me a bit about your group. Here’s a thought about that curved ceiling in the Baptist Meeting House at Heritage Square: I’ve seen this sort of thing before. The curved ceiling allows for a little more height in the room, as it fits inside the pitch of the roof. Gives a larger “feel” to the place and also enhances the acoustics, which was important back before electrical systems, when the preacher and the choir had to make themselves heard without amplifiers.

    Looking forward to your next feature.

    Ah, my two favorite things. Architecture, and big old trees. As a lost Wisconsinite living in Texas, I loved the old Maple.
