I have 2 churches:

this one my father bought way back in 1950 which has been part of the 'family train' setup every year since. cardboard houses, church fence, and manger in back are all part of what Dad bought back then.

another scene of it from a different year:  When I was old enough to add scenery, we really didn't have anything so I put my toy cowboys and indians in a scene.  So I included those here too.

My 2nd one I bought.  It's the Plasticville one.  I painted it up, added "stained glass windows", and lit it inside:

My wife assembled "The Church of the Right Track" out of paper from an internet download. However one side was really bad-looking. So I downloaded it and did it right. I put them next to each other, and when people asked why there were two of them I explained that they had a church split.

In case you need ideas, l once did a photo trip of Indiana country churches down along the Ohio, and can suggest that.  As for the church in a machine shop, in the first three grades in school l attended a Baptist Church that leased the first floor auditorium of a lodge hall.  That church later bought the four classroom (3 were used) grade school l attended  for those 3 grades, and modiified it greatly, and it functions today.  So, anything goes?

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!

Colorado, I agree.  Our old high school, where my grandparents, parents, and many aunts and uncles went to is now a church.  I attended 5th and 6th grades in that building, before moving to the then new, but now well over 50 years old Jr-Sr High School.  I have not seen the inside of the 100-year old high school since the church bought it, but they have done a nice job maintaining the exterior as I remember it a half century ago.

Thanks Walt,

There is a cemetery behind the stone arch with the cross on top, that is where the skeleton resides

Is the guy laying on the ground in front of the bench alright?  Looks like the lady sitting their has just said or done something to drop him.

You are probably right Tom, I think he was getting frisky with her after having too much liquid enjoyment prior to the ceremony

From his posture and the position of his hand I'll bet I know where she hit him.
