Father Dyer Methodiat Church

Did this one this morning. The building is the Father Dyer Methodist Church in Breckenridge, CO. Father Dyer was the Snowshoe Itinerant Preacher. Back in the day when there was no other way through the Rocky Mountains, he used snowshoes and skis, 12 foot planks, going from mining town to mining town, delivering mail and preaching the Word. He planted this church in Breckenridge in the 1880's, I believe, which is still going strong today.
