Hello friends! This video features the exploration of an abandoned Methodist church located in Indiana. The date inscribed on the structure is 1927 which is when it became a church, but the 3,256 square foot building itself was constructed in 1898 when it was used as a one-room school house beforehand. The church has been abandoned as such since 1959 due to lack of religious support. The property was purchased by a man who lives in Texas in 2009. My sources show that he acquired the property in exchange for assuming tax liabilities. I am assuming that was so he could make money from the State should they decide to purchase the land from him in order to add an interchange at that overpass where the church sits — an investment. Either that, or for sentimental reasons as he was from the area long before he moved to Texas. These ideas are just conjecture on my part going by the information I was able to find. Nevertheless, it’s been left to rot and doesn’t appear to be able to be restored due to its poor location sitting on only one acre of land too close to the freeway. Thanks for watching! 🙂
