An abandoned country church (built in 1859) of unknown faith near Baraboo Wisconsin falling into decline. This unfortunate church is heaped with garbage and has 2 old cars inside dating roughly some time around the late 40’s early 50’s.

    Oh and it’s still so beautiful!! Nice card! ;-))

  • Thank you Stephanie…i was here at this quaint little church during the summer months and took some pic’s of it but did’nt keep any because you could’nt see the church very well. I went out last weekend searching for this church…had a hell of a hard time trying to find it again but i found it! When i was here in the summertime i peaked inside an unlocked side door and to my surprize it’s HEAPED with tons of junk and two old cars inside. There was so much junk inside it you could’nt walk around inside. Below the steeple it shows that it was built in 1859.

    Stunning image Dennis, this makes such a beautiful Christmas card! Your additional stars and processing are perfect! :-)

I was afraid i was’nt going to be able to fund this quaint church again and just as i was about to give up trying to find there she was…just sitting there quietly in the snow waiting for me. Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season! :-)

    This is beautiful Dennis…in age she still shines:)

  • Thank you Thelma…she’s a true beauty is’nt she. It’s a shame what they’ve done to the interior. It does’nt show in the photograph but parts of the roof is starting to rot away. Animals have gotton inside thru the left rear door (not shown)…it’s a sad mess inside.
