It’s old and weather beaten, locked up and unused. This sorry looking building with faded paint is home only to pigeons, their occasional cooing breaking the silence. Sure, there’s the memories of Sunday Service, the weddings the funerals. Happy occasions some, sad and tearful others. All behind it now. Today no one drops by any more, a forgotten place this.
Here, a brief look at the little leaning church in Aldersyde Alberta.
We’re told it dates from the 1920s and remained in used perhaps up until the 1970s. Information is spotty at best, however (and you know how we hate not getting the “full picture”). For many years now it’s been fenced in, the property a sometimes coral for horses. Not sure what’s in store for the building. Not sure if it’s even got a future, what with the timbers giving way. Time will tell I guess. That’s about all we have.
Attempts were made to contact the owner, to know more, but with no success. We’ve struck out here.
A random post you’re sure to love…
Short Subjects: reports that for any number of reasons are brief in nature. They might be updates to older articles, previews of posts planned or not yet published, brief snippets of things that don’t fit in anywhere else or subjects that are so obscure that information on them can’t be found. Or sometimes we just ramble on about Lord knows what.
If you need any more information on what we talked about here, by all means contact us!

The church is private property but you can shoot from the fence line.
