This is the Catholic church in Laconner, WA. It is a town built on a channel and was a busy fishing, logging and shipping village until the railroad bypassed it and things could be shipped by rail not schooners. The town lay dormant for many years and left untouched so a majority of old building remain and in good condition. It is now a thriving antique and tourist town. Upscale! This church was built in the late 1800s. I thought the sun made for cool lighting.

This is the Shaker Church on the Tulalip Indian Reservation. There has been talk of tearing down this church but the Tulalips' do not want that. It is a sacred building. The Indian shaker Religion was started in 1881 by Squaxin John Slocum.
It is unrelated to the Shakers of New England.

This church is in Edison, right in the little town. It is not a church anymore. It was at one time a Catholic church. I talked to the lady who lived there and she said it was one of the first buildings in Edison and the town was founded in1869. Most of the old buildings are still in use in town. It is a cute, funky town.
She did say everyone should live in a church. I didnt ask anymore questions.
