Trinity Lutheran Church at Simmie

I spent four or five days in the Shaunavon area last fall checking out the sites and just enjoying some time off. On my way home I passed through Simmie, Saskatchewan and found this long abandoned church on the west side of town.

A very steep roof on this church with a matching bell tower above the entryway.

Our gracious host, Mr. Bandy, must have been in a bit of a hurry when he passed through town because he completely missed the church marker, a rather large stone adorned with two plaques: one for Trinity Lutheran Church and the other for Simmie School (which no longer exists).  And now Mr Bandy has to drive all the way back to Simmie because I know he collects photos of signs and markers. Ha! Ha!

The History Book Club has also marked at least one other school in the area. Good for them!

A small house next to the church which may have been the parsonage. Love the chimney design.

  1. I likely will drive back to Simmie, so there!

    1. There's lots to see around there so it's worth another road trip.
