|It was a lot with a burned out house that no one wanted to deal with before it was cleaned up to start the church. It was a tent and still has a canvas roof just like the Christian Sanitary Commission set to the field for regimental use. It is intended to be a reasonable representation of a Church that would have been attended by Civil War soldiers North or South. As such it would not have plumbing or other modern zoning requirements.
I am glad I do not have to decide this issue. I know here in Ohio if a structure is on runners it is not considered a permenent structure. I wonder if it being designated as a Church exempts the property from realestate taxes. I know the folks operating it do not collect any fees.
