First Methodist Episcopal Church, Altoona, KS

June 5, 2014

I have to refer to this as the former Methodist Episcopal church in Altoona, Kansas, since google.maps shows no sign of a building substantial enough to have this footprint. An email to the public library in Fredonia, the county seat, may reveal what happened. Such buildings as this are fascinating (to me, at least) because they appear so “unchurchly” and even civic/secular in character. I had hoped that an aerial view might have suggested an internal arrangement.

In case you’re wondering, the cornerstone gives a construction date of 1923, which puts this building at the very end of the A-A phenomenon.
