A little history

So some History, eh? Why don't we just start close to the beginning? (or as close as i can get right now.

This is how the church looked back when it was built, which was around 1866. If you looked at the church now, you may not recognize it. In 1935, an extensive remodeling took place. The bell tower was removed, and a smaller, chimney-looking one was build on the back of their church. The balcony was removed, side and main alters replaced and/or disposed of, and the outside was covered with sandstone. Anyone can tell that there is absolutely no reason for any of that. Just compare the pictures above, and wait till you see the ones below. Many parishioners hate what they did to their church long ago. Some rumors also circulate that Father Speier would like to do something about the ceiling.

This is how it originally looked. (and how if looks now) Now, there is a drop ceiling...bad move? Maybe. This is what most would call, "wreckovations ". However, as stated above, their might be some movement to get this place looking more original, than modern.


  1. As wreckovations go, I've seen worse, but it's good to hear there's interest in something even better.
    That's happening more and more these days and should be encouraged.
    The place has a lot of potential.

  2. very much so. I believe the next thing on the list is the stained glass windows. They already re-did the one on the front door
