Two churches

The E. L. Moore schoolhouse build reminded me of this church I photographed in the late 1990's. It's a Free Methodist church that, according to the sign, was founded in 1895. I can't recall exactly where it's located other than I think it was in the township of Marmora and Lake in Hastings County, Ontario. In the same bundle of photos was the one shown below of the Eldorado Church of the Nazarene in Eldorado, Oklahoma. Debra shot the picture sometime in the late 1990's. It has a distinctiveness that might make for a good model.

  1. I'm struck by the similarities between your first church and the one that I based my church build on. Even the landscaping is similar! http://www.utrainia.com/29-an-engaging-build-part-2

    1. They are very similar, and as you point out, right down to even the landscape. I can only speculate that there was a certain shared thinking regarding buildings of these sort - maybe 'transmitted' by plan books, immigrents memories, and so on
