Methodist Episcopal Church, Olathe, KS

May 24, 2016

s-l1600-11

Olathe’s Methodists seem to have gone through some reorganization. In the course of consolidation, First Methodist has been subsumed and the building itself is gone. Such streamlining of “church” as a delivery-service system are often necessary for economics, but the consequent loss for architectural heritage is regrettable.

The visual complexity of First M.E. suggests what must have been a remarkable plan, integrating not only the Sunday School but also, possibly, a rectory and other components. It’s tempting to attempt a partial reconstruction.
