Spotted this on July 30, 2016 while heading towards Havre, Montana. I love running across stuff like this and this one turned out to be very interesting. It must be well built to survive this long. I took a look through the window and it looks like someone used it as a barn so no interior photos. Someone should have preserved it as it is an interesting piece of history. You see buildings like this in Canada as it is a common style.
The signs read as follows:
"Cottonwood Community Homesteaded 1910"
"First School 1912"
"Cottonwood Hall 1914"
"Catholic Church 1928"
"First Presbyterian 1915"
Great photos, BW! I like the triangular windows on the sides! At least there is a marker to let you know what was there.ReplyDelete
What Chickenmom said. That old building has seen a lot of local history.ReplyDelete
I am with Chickenmom and Vicki...love the diamond windows in the entryway, the bell tower, imagine the sunlight coming in through the windows during service. Great find! Super photos! Well done sir!ReplyDelete
