Presbyterian Church, Minden, NE

Mysteries abound in the search for A-A churches, especially using early 20th-century postcard images. During the process of taking the photograph, processing the negative, sending it to a publisher in Milwaukee or New York or some other American city, and the preparation of that negative for printing, there was ample time for misidentification.  As an A-B-a-b type, I’m fairly certain this building exhibits sufficient characteristics of the A-A to safely be added to the database.

Looking for information on the building, however, adds some confusion to the attribution. Google.maps shows a more modern (mid-century) building in Minden and further image searching reveals two earlier buildings, both identified as a Presbyterian church in that community: one is run-of-the-mill Gothic Revival, the other is this one [pictured above]. The congregation has no current website (or at least one that I can locate), so google.books and an email to Minden may clear things up.
