This year's Christmas Country Church Tour was larger than ever, featuring 38 stops across five counties. The event is now "interstate" since it includes the church in Kaskaskia, located in Illinois but accessed from Missouri.
For this installment, I focused on the northernmost additions (Kaskaskia and St. Mary) and a few churches I hadn't seen before (at Sereno and Crosstown). Below is a sample of photos.
(If you missed this tour or the Southern Cape County tour, you still have a chance to catch the last of the trifecta of church tours: the Scott County tour on Friday, Dec. 20.)
