Forgotten Church

I have driven past this place many times, considering it is right downtown on Main St.

I always wondered what it was.

Last week while I was walking through town, I ventured over to check it out.

I don't know why but when I peeked into a broken window, I was surprised to see that it was once a church. I don't know if it has always been a church or not.

I did notice that it had been updated probably in the late forties to mid fifties (I'm guessing about the era) with windows and a small extension of a little kitchenette and bathrooms. The stove was still there, I did get a pic of it but it was blurry cause I had to run away from the bees!

It did appear that had been in use up to at least the seventies. There were still books and other junk in the back portion.

Church doors are supposed to be always open, right?

Awesome. I love exploring old buildings and wondering about the history and previous occupants.

You just uncovered for me a gold mine. Yes the doors to church should be open but we have had so much vandalism they even break into locked churches.
