    1852 Historic Church Preservation

    Out in the country, in Elkhart County, Indiana, there is a small historic church. Constructed in 1852, St. John's Lutheran Church remains essentially the same today as it was back then... no electricity, no water, no insulation. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (1994). The last formal service was held in 1894, but recently the building has undergone quite a renovation thanks to a team of volunteers and much needed funding.

    In 2015 they allowed me to use the premises to learn how to safely use my first drone in its wide-open space. Flying it manually for experience, I happened to gather some footage of the renovation without knowing it would be used later as part of a history of the building. Recently (2018), the renovation was completed and an "open house" was held for the public to view this historic building.

    Here is a short video preserving the renovation process.

    Interesting history! Especially the maker of the pews!

    Here in Poland in some very small villages, they have churches without heat or bathroom.

    Yes... I must find it easier when the background doesn't move. Ha!

    Ha! Maybe in Europe it is called a WC? We who were brought up in America refer to them sometimes as "bathrooms" but usually that is not where we take a bath.

    Well, that would surely encourage shorter services... at least for me!

    Exactly.

    That's why Winston Churchill always refused to put his initials on the door of his office.

    Ha!  I never thought about that... Winston was a wise man.
