Abandoned Church at Butler Center #3

This abandoned brick church is located at Butler Center, in rural Dekalb County, Indiana. Butler Center isn't a town, just a crossroads with a couple of houses, an abandoned one-room school, and this church. It is the geographic center of Butler Township, at the intersection of County Road 11 and County Road 60, a few miles south of Garrett.

The church was built in 1894 as the "Methodist Protestant Church." It is in bad condition, with several broken windows. The back of the church's apse has a garage door installed in it! Some of the windows, including this one, still have old Fedders window air conditioner units in them.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
