An Abandoned Church on Hoagland Road

 

This abandoned church is at the corner of Hoagland Road and Clayton Road in southeast Allen County, Indiana. It was being used as a barn by the farmer who owned it. I have seen many old schoolhouses in Indiana repurposed as barns, but this is the first church that I have seen used this way.

I discovered it while driving to the nearby town of Monroeville back in January, 2008. The weather was bad that day, as it was very windy, so I marked the map and vowed to return.

I made these photographs on my third trip there, the first time I was able to find the right light without a lot of wind. It was Easter Sunday, and rain began to fall as I was working.
