One hundred thirty-three years have passed and this one is still standing in Sedalia, Missouri. Progress has downed several buildings around it, creating parking lots in the process, but Calvary Episcopal Church is a survivor. Just a few photos for this Thursday Doors and little hype. I have always admired the beautiful stained glass and the building itself as a whole. A lovely testament that early Sedalians intended to stay.

Formerly the First Congregational Church of Sedalia, this 1889 church has been lucky to survive.
Corner of 6th and Osage
Abandoned in the 80’s, it was acquired by a Slavic congregation as early as 2006, but don’t quote me on that year. This one was hard to find information on.
Facing South Osage Street
I would hope it is on the National Register of Historical Places. But I haven’t been able to find that data as of yet.
A South facing door.
Bell Tower but not sure there’s a bell?
At one point, the church had many more stained glass windows. Unfortunately there have been more modern replacements. Not to mention the basement windows are all closed with cement and blocks.
Currently the First Slavic Pentecostal Church
I did find Missouri State info suggesting Sedalia is void of any Pre-Civil War buildings. So this one must be one of the earliest.
