Hamden Church

We followed a lead in Charition County, Missouri and back tracked 30 miles to find what was supposed to be a large abandoned school made of wood and across the road used to be a church, but was tore down. So we found the opposite, no school, but this very scenic church out in the middle of no where. This is what is left of a town called Hamden. The elements were so simple here. A tall church, a great tree, open hilltop, and even an outhouse! The name was the Church of the Immaculate Conception which was Catholic. The back door was open and it still contained all of its pews with kneeling benches. Also a little loft. The bell room looked unstable.
