An older church for Tuesday's Treasures...

We came across this church when we were exploring areas of Terre Haute.  I all my years of living here, I have never seen it.
We were both impressed by it.
I just hate that it pieces of the stained glass have falling out/been broken.
I have to show all these to do it justice...
I could see this as a quilting design in a triangle...
I don't know if the building is being used for anything at all or not.  I sure wish someone would have the money and the time to restore it.

The stain glass is SO impressive!!!! And a beautiful church it is. Maybe someone with a good piece of money CAN restore it. Let's hope so.

The windows are amazing. It would be nice for them to be restored and protected.

Arti said...

I agree, it would be a great fortune for this beautiful church and windows, if someone would spend his time and money to restore it.

A fine old church building. Too bad they did not protect the windows with coverings.

How I'd love to see these windows from the inside on a sunny day. What a treasure you've found Rose, thanks for sharing. I hope to see more of your treasures soon.

It is a beautiful church and thanks for showing us close ups of the amazing leaded, stained glass windows!

It is a beauty. It would be a shame if it just was left to go to ruin. Good example for Tuesday's Treasures.

Just look at those gorgeous windows and the leading. That main one has to be magnificent from inside. You are going to have to go back one of these days and take follow up pictures from the inside when the light is hitting the glass. What a fine find.
