A middle path

When the members of the John Wesley UMC, in Abingdon, Maryland built a new church, they didn't restore the old one, but they didn't demolish it either. They just left it alone. I wish more people would do the same. While there's such a thing as too many abandoned buildings, a few decrepit structures can spice up any locality. Why even the National Park Service keeps some of its buildings in a state of arrested decay. And why not? Everybody likes a ghost town.
