St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church

Abandoned church in rural alberta west of Bashaw, Alberta on March 5, 2017. It sits on top of a hill. I do not know how long it has been abandoned. The day was a little cold to be out exploring.

The steps look fairly new so maybe someone was going to restore it at one time. There is no way they are going to restore it now. The foundation is bowing out in a couple of places. The cost would be too high.

Very simple church. Nothing ornate on the outside.

Just off the hill beside the range road is the cemetery. I would have got a closer look except there were some high snow drifts.


  1. Such a large chucrh out in the middle of nowhere. I like the doors - they must have been beautiful at one time.

  2. Cool photos and I'm not talking about the weather
