It's probably not a church...
I'm not quite sure what it was used for. I do know there was a strong Eastern Eurpoean influence here back in the day, but I'm not knowledgable enough in architecture to say anything with any authority. This is the good side of the building; the other side has collapsed with trees growing out of it.
Looks like it was built as a normal 2story street corner building circa 1900. The homecooked siding job was done in the 60s or 70s or 80s (my guess). Does the pay phone still operate? Not many of those around anymore.
Not sure if the pay phone still works, but there are several of those rusted relics around the neighborhood. Its weird and sad to see a neighborhood so close to downtown get neglected like it does.
I can ask my dad if he knows what was here in this building. Our family immigrated from Slovenia (then Yugoslavia) and owned several commercial buildings. He may remember. Do you have any other photos of the commercial buildings in the neighborhood? thx
