Stonington Methodist Episcopal Church

Step back in history in the lovely prairie village of historic Stonington. The Late Gothic Revival style of the 1917 white clapboard Methodist-Episcopal Church recalls New England design. Local craftsman W. S. Murray, a postmaster from a nearby small Kansas town, built the church and many of the small residences in town. It was the second church built--and the only identified example of this style--in Baca County. The original wood weathervane and bell are still functional. Stonington was established in 1887 and was named for the rocky stream near the original site. It was the hub for the surrounding community until Walsh was established in 1926.
