Methodist Episcopal Church, Galena, KS

September 1, 2015


At 520 Joplin Street you will find the United Methodist Church of Galena, Kansas, confirmed by google.maps. I hope that an email to the congregation will at least provide a date of construction and confirmation that an Akron-Auditorium plan once existed in its Romanesque Revival shell.


You can see the liberties that postcard publishers often took with rendition: the contrasting color of the arches in the PC act somewhat like eyebrows for the window and door openings, providing some definition that the actual buildings lacks. But I wonder why the entrances were altered.
