Baptist Church, Baxter Springs, KS

October 24, 2016

Baxter Springs holds a special place in my heart: on a Sunday in 1969 I locked myself out of my car in front of this church. Yes, the Akron-Auditorium project goes back that far.

Given the square-ish shape of the central lantern and the windows in each of its four corners, as well as the corner entry. I’m willing to be this is one of the hundred or so churches by C. W. Bulger mentioned in his 1922 article referenced a few entries earlier. If that is the case, then there is no direct connection between auditorium and religious education; this is an F-1.

Still standing at the corner of Tenth Avenue and East Avenue, the “battlements” have been removed and the clerestory windows removed.
