Repurposing c. 1980

The first thing that I noticed about this late 20th-century church, aside from the odd proportions, was that its stained glass windows were much older than the structure itself.  Closer inspection revealed that the windows had been reworked, presumably for incorporation into the existing church building.  What had become of the old building?  A little research online turned up an historic photo, but I could find no information about the demise of the earlier building.

A closer view of the entry… note the mid-century modern “sunburst” patterned doors behind the glass doors.

 

This is the original church building from which the windows were taken.

  1. Guess they wanted to have that mega church look. The old building looked charming. Makes one wonder.
