Christian Church, Ladonia, TX

The history of Ladonia’s Christian church (Disciples of Christ) is messy. The 1890 building served until either 1902 or 1906. One on-line history says it burned in 1903; another claims the building served until 1906.

A 1905 replacement (above) developed severe structural issues, when the 1917 church (below) was dedicated. It’s remarkable that the 1905 building (shown here) and the 1917 structure are very similar. I suspect the foundation was undamaged by the fire and reused.

Somewhere in the database, I know there’s another building of almost identical configuration.
