Unknown Church, Mentone, IN

December 31, 2017

With only slight modifications to the entries, this could easily have been a post office. The denomination is unidentified and the small town of Mentone has nothing looking remotely like this. Surely there was an auditorium sanctuary, but the Sunday school may have been in the lower level.

PS [UPDATE05Jan2018]: Sure enough, there it is at Broadway and Harrison, a rectangle in almost the exact center of this aerial view.

There is also a Mentone in Victoria, Australia, with a R.C. church of St Patrick. I thought it had some interesting  parallels with Indiana:

    The aerial photography of Google Earth shows what appears to be this building still standing at the northwest corner of North Broadway and West Harrison in Mentone, but there is no street-level view available for that location.

  2. My appreciation for roofscapes is fairly dismal.
