I have passed this beautiful
church many times.
It is located south of Hays Kansas.
I finally decided to stop last weekend.
This was taken in the early evening.
Additional image and history will
be in the discussion area.

HAVE A GLORIOUS DAY
FULL OF BLESSINGS!!

Liebenthal, a small town in west-central Kansas, was founded by German-Russian emigrants from the Volga region of Russia in 1876. It is the oldest of several similar settlements in Ellis and Rush counties. As devout Catholics, religion played a large part in the lives of the early inhabitants of these communities, and they built several impressive stone churches. The cornerstone for St. Joseph's Kirche (Church) was laid in 1902, and the new church was dedicated in 1905. Subsequent additions included a parish house and school building. Unfortunately the church and parish house were destroyed by fire in 1917. These were rebuilt, and the present church was dedicated in 1921.
Liebenthal is located next to Big Timber Creek, a tributary of the Smoky Hill River. This vicinity is part of the Blue Hills physiographic region, which is underlain by chalk, limestone and shale bedrock. The Fencepost Limestone is a chalky limestone bed that was quarried widely for construction purposes, including thousands of fenceposts and many buildings, bridges, towers, and churches. This limestone is relatively soft and easily worked when first exposed; after drying, it becomes a handsome stone that endures the relatively dry climate of western Kansas quite well. It is the primary stone of St. Joseph's Church and other German-Russian Catholic churches of the region.

Outstanding capture here and the warm light makes these images even more beautiful. Jeana there are folks here in MO who have gone out to KS and got some of those stone post for ornamental fence in their yards.
