The Zion Baptist Church east of Jasper, a community landmark since the 1880s, is being torn down following severe damage from a tornado last May 22. Neighbor Jimmie Carter is salvaging what he can from the building to make mementos for those with a connection to the church, and preserve its memory into the future. (Photos by James McNary)
