How do buildings like this disappear? This “proposed” Baptist church was built but its former location at the corner of Jefferson and Fillmore is now a vacant lot. It stood until roughly 2004 but became vulnerable when the Baptists merged with the Presbyterians at the edge of town. It the right time, this might have become senior housing.

Ernest Brostrom was a Kansas City architect who strayed about this far from his usual market area.
