This is a special place for Elvis. Elvis was baptized here. He watched the old church that stood at this spot for decades be torn down and replaced with this new church (well, it was new in 1967). Elvis experienced weddings, funerals and all manner of community gatherings here. Elvis used to light the candles for Sunday service. There's even a dove with Elvis' name on it hanging from the rafters.
The very first photograph ever taken of Elvis happened here (see it HERE).
All of that and it's located in the greatest town on planet Earth - Toeterville, Iowa. Home of the friendliest people and the best fish fry you'll ever experience. Really.

Both photographs made with a Nikon D3s
