The Pink Church

A landscape shot of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, otherwise known as The Pink Church, located outside of Harlem, Montana on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation.

 

The Sacred Heart Catholic Church is a beautiful old church located on U.S. Highway 2 east of Harlem on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. Known as the pink church, many say the structure is haunted, but one story in particular stands out from all the rest here on the Hi-Line.

 

Dubious of claims the church was haunted, four men visited to take a closer look. Upon finding the church boarded up and closed to the public, they decided to leave. Before driving away the driver heard two thumps behind him. Thinking his buddies were trying to scare him, the driver exclaimed, "Very funny. Get back in the car. Let's go." The man sitting behind the driver said, "Um, we're already in the care and no one back here made those noises." Scared, the men quickly drove away. Later, after returning home, the driver inspected his car and was shocked to find two small, child-like hand prints on the rear quarter panel of his car.

 

I don't know if the stories about the pink church are true, but I was certainly respectful enough to keep my distance when I took this shot.
