Old Stone Church in W. Boylston, MA. It was built in 1890 but in 1900 the surrounding area was flooded as a reservoir. The church was abandoned and burned. All that is left is what you see here. Not a stick of wood remains inside, not a pew or altar or cross, just sand. It sits on the shore of a reservoir which serves as sediment basin for the the Quabbin before it reaches Boston. There is nothing else around. The surrounding town was burned down. A dignified legacy for a beautiful building.

Thus they found their way into nearly every aspect of cathedral design, from the numbers of the pillars in the choir and layout of the facade, and, inevitably, to the division of the rose windows. In fact, the middle ages was nuts about numbers and geometry.
