Always Wondered About That Steeple

I’ve always wondered about the steeple on this church in Eau Claire’s Randle Park Neighborhood. It looks like they plucked it off another church or maybe got it at an estate sale. I finally got around to doing a little digging around about it tonight and turns out that originally there was a dome where the steeple was. The dome was destroyed in a fire at some point and replaced by the steeple. No word on what year the fire happened or if they picked up the steeple second hand.

[Edit] The fire and the building of the steeple happened in 1935. The church was built in 1912.
