Saint Michael's Catholic Church at Kimeo, Washington County, Kansas

On Saint Patrick's Day here are photos of the Catholic Church at Kimeo in southeast Washington County, Kansas. The Kimeo community was settled by Irish pioneers beginning in the 1870s. The Church was constructed in 1904 of local Kansas limestone and is a landmark that can be seen for miles around with the green roof helping to make it even more striking. Though the Church has been closed for several years it is maintained by a nonprofit association and is still used on special occasions.
