This church was a bit of a surprise as I wasn't aware there was a Greek Orthodox Church in Worland. I don't know anything else about it. The structure is interesting as it's sort of a modified Prairie Gothic structure.

Today In Wyoming's History: Sidebar: The Irish in Wyoming: Just recently we posted our "green" edition of this blog with our St. Patrick's Day entry . Given that, this is a good time ...

A few photographs below I had a photo of a combined Presbyterian and Methodist congregation in Thermopolis Wyoming, and here we have an example of a Church that serves, or at least at one time served, both Lutheran and Catholic congregations. This is St. Philip's Catholic Church in Basin. Dual congregations like this are unusual, but not completely unprecedented. St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Casper, for example, at one time also served the Greek Orthodox community there prior the Greek Orthodox Church in Casper being built. This one is a bit more unusual as it served Catholic and Protestant congregations. Apparently right now no Catholic masses are being offered here, however, and the Catholic community is being served by the nearby church in Greybull.
Sometimes churches are extraordinarily hard to photograph because of external features, and this one fits that category. The very large pine trees in the front make photographing this church a difficult task and this photograph is not the best.

This is the United Methodist Church in Basin, Wyoming. This style of church is a bit unusual for a Methodist Church, although at least the Methodist Church in Wheatland Wyoming has a similar Federalist style.

This is St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Basin Wyoming. This small town Episcopal Church fits into the Gothic style, in our view. I don't know anything else about it, other than that its coloration is unusual for a wooden church.

This is the First Baptist Church in Worland Wyoming. I"m not entirely certain how to categorize the architecture of this church, which has a certain New England style to it.

The United Methodist Church in Worland Wyoming. This Church fits into the Gothic Architecture category, but like a lot of churches in this region of Wyoming, it has some Romanesque features as well.

This Catholic Church in Greybull Wyoming features Gothic and Romanesque features. The bell tower in particular is an interesting Romanesque addition to the existing church.

This is St. Francis Catholic Church, in Thermopolis Wyoming. This attractive Romanesque style Church has a very classic European style to it. I'm not aware of when it was built.
This is the Community Federated Church of Thermopolis, Wyoming, which serves a combined Methodist and Presbyterian congregation, the first church serving a combined congregation that I've run across, although something similar exists in regards to an upcoming post for Basin Wyoming.
The Church is a classic modern Gothic style church, but otherwise I know nothing about it.
