Ozark Gothic

Pressure-treated pine rising 48 feet and 425 windows don't always amount to much. To whit, check out Chicago's South Side. That said, Pine Bluff, Arkansas' E. Fay Jones imagined this Ozark Gothic structure in the middle of the woods, and that's where it sits today. Lights and shadows from the trees assure that Thorncrown Chapel never looks twice.
