    It looks wonderful but I want to know if they are going to leave the most important part of that barn, “To God Be The Glory”???

    We were delighted today on a trip to Galena to see the “To God be the Glory” barn restored! We first looked for it each trip in 1975-76 on our way to and from Warren Il when my husband and I were engaged and traveling back and forth to see each other. Now we’ve been married 42 years and look for the barn roof message annually on our way to a Lutheran church leader conference each fall at Sinsinawa Mound. Thanks for this continued witness and celebration! We now live in Genoa, Il
