Abandoned Church, Larimer, February 28, 2016

Grand old Catholic church with beautiful domes fallen on hard times and neglect.

 

Dug up a bit of history about the place. Built by Italian immigrants as Our Lady of Help of Christians Church in 1898; burned down in 1905; rebuilt 1906; was a center of Italian-American religious and social life for generations; closed 1992; sold in 1995 by catholic diocese to Heavenly Vision Ministries; has been on the market for sale since 2009.
