Photo size increased

The default photo size has been increased on this blog, and so old entries will now appear larger.  If you had a favorite church here, therefore, you  may wish to go back and check it out again.

As always, if you click on the photo you can get a very large version of it.

First Baptist Church, Yale Oklahoma

This is the First Baptist Church in Yale, Oklahoma. This particular church style is surprising in this context. The town of Yale is fairly small, and this is a substantially built Greek revival style church.  I don't know the age of the church, but Yale was obviously a fairly substantial town earlier in the 20th Century and this church likely dates to that period.

Fellowship Baptist Church, Yale Oklahoma

This stone church is located in the small Oklahoma town of Yale.  In some ways, its appearance causes me to suspect that it was converted to this use from some other use, but at the same time it's general shape supports the idea that it has always been a church.  Otherwise, I have no information on it.
