My favorite bead store, “Beads Down Under” in Sandy, is closing soon. Kathy, the owner, invited those of us who’ve been friends for years, to stop by today for the beginning of her closeout sale, so I stopped by.
The bead store is located in the basement of this picturesque church, which has been a Sandy landmark for years. I was here today, so it’s my photo of the day.
Wow….how old da church? Wot dat sign “Going out of business”? All pau?
Hea da info about it. Da bead stoa stay going out of business, not da church.
“This Lutheran church, built in 1902 on land donated by Caspar Junker, was the second church built in Sandy. The first church, St. Michael’s Catholic Church, was built in 1894. The Lutheran congregation also built a parsonage in between the church and the Lutheran school. This church provided a place of worship in an otherwise tough town. In 1959 the Lutheran congregation built a new church and this one became the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. This building is one of Sandy’s most recognizable landmarks and is still in use today, but for non-sectarian purposes. Photo taken 2008.”
I love taking photos of churches and temples. In fact, I make it a point to stop by Buddhist temples whenever I’m traveling. This one has a lot of years under her steeple. Yes indeed, it looks like a landmark.
