|Historic Mentz Church, Montezuma, NY (Circa 1825)|
This reminds me of a story I heard today about three riders on the "Cycling the Erie Canalway bike ride. These gentlemen seen the sign on Route 31 for the Historic Mentz Church, and decided to take a side trip to check it out. They stopped and asked Paul Baker how much farther to the church. Paul showed them it was "just up the road a-piece" and asked if they would like to see the inside. So Paul dropped what he was doing in this garden, and gave them the grand tour. I can only imagine that Paul's wife, Bunny could have been the gate-keeper's wife. I can see her making apple pie and greeting the travelers along the Canal.
