St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Ironton, Missouri

St. Paul’s Episcopal Mission was organized on April 13, 1869. Plans for a church building were begun the next spring. Episcopalians, members of other denominations, and other non church people helped generously with money, supplies, wild land, and labor. Judge John W. Emerson gave the lots and supplied the plans and detailed drawings for the gothic-in-wood structure.
The distinctive roof and belfrey, majestic ceiling, wide-board floor, hand hewn pews, and deep-toned bell are as they were in 1870. The original windows have been re-leaded and have had some new panes-except for the circular Nativity window, which has never suffered any damage.

I live Ironton, Missouri and I enjoy taking photos of the many things I see around town. It seems there is always something new to photograph, whether it be everything made new by a fresh layer of snow, or by the birth of a new spring. I photograph whatever it is that catches my eye.

    Fantastic image of this one, Not a single electric line in sight, impressive. Great work!!!

  • The angle I shot this at was good to not get many power lines.

    Superb of this neat old church. You don’t have any power lines in the image – fantastic work. Beautiful image lady. I have been asked to do a photography workshop there in town by Kip. Looks like I will be there on Wednesday some time soon to do one. Not sure if it will be a one time thing or if there is enough interest to do it several sessions.

  • They recently replaced the roof and I was surprised that they didn’t keep it as colorful as the original. I actually thought they had to since it is on the Historic register. But I found out later that the colorful roof was actually not the original.
    I think Martha Belle is charging 25 bucks just to watch Kip paint! I had a friend that was teaching a knitting class but Martha Belle wanted her to charge so much that she is now conducting the class for free elsewhere.
    Let me know when you will be here and how much the cost is.
