First Southern Baptist Church, Casper Wyoming

This is the First Southern Baptist Church in Casper Wyoming.  This church features colonial style architecture.  I'm unsure of when it was built, but my guess would be the 1960s or 1950s.

Unidentified Church, North Casper Wyoming.

This is the location of a former church in North Casper, Wyoming.  Now its the site of Food For Thought, a charitable organization in Casper.  I unfortunatley do not know what denomination built hte church, although the letters "W M" are on the door, indicating that perhaps it was once a Wesleyan Methodist church.

The church is near a park dedicated to James Reeb, a minister who lost his live in the South during the Civil Rights era, but I do not know of a connection, off hand, between him and this church.

St. Anthony's of Padua Convent, Casper Wyoming

Not a church, but a former convent located next to the former St. Anthony's School, which can be seen to the right of this photograph. This convent included a chapel within it. It has not served as a convent for many years. This building is located one block from Our Savior's Lutheran Church, also depicted on this blog, and St. Mark's Episcopal Church is located on the next block, across the street from the school.  The structure was built in 1954.


An article in today's Casper Star Tribune reveals that his building has been converted into luxury apartments, with no two being the same as no two rooms in the building were the same.  It is presently at 60% occupancy.  The developer, who owns the neighboring school, chose the name The Marian for it, recalling its role as a convent.  The plan noted in the comments fell through, and he came up with this new one.
