This church is located in the hamlet of Etzikom, Alberta
in the County of Forty Mile No. 8. After over fifty years
of service it was decommissioned; many years of neglect
followed and then plans were made to demolish the church.
A local resident decided this landmark was worth saving
and purchased it. The day I photographed it I talked
with him and he had decided to give it a new coat of
paint the following spring. Sadly, he passed away
just a few months ago.
My hopes are that the family will proceed with his
plans for the church. It would be a lovely
memorial to him.
