Madison and Shepherd featured a unique community center near Sawyerville on the banks of the Black Warrior River. The structure is comprised of rammed earth (didn't know either; click here for explanation), aluminum sheets and GMC car windows.  In addition to providing a community center for area residents, the revolutionary structure is also known as the Glass Chapel. The building materials aren't fancy but, as you'll soon discover in the video below, the finished product is breathtaking!
