Wilmer, Alabama is a small unincorporated community on highway 98 out of Mobile. We passed through on our way home from Florida about 10 years ago. I was fascinated with all the store-front churches along the short spanse of the community visible on this narrow little 2-lane road. Why did one little community have so many churches? Who attended? No larger than this community appeared to be (it is so small, the only numbers I can find are rolled into the Mobile County report), how many folks could there be in each church? Perhaps it is fitting, as the town is named for Richard H. Wilmer, an Episcopal bishop.
