The First Presbyterian Church of Taiban, New Mexico is just about my favorite place to photograph. In the fall of 1908, construction began on the little church and it was completed on December 22, 1908. It cost $250 to build, less than $100 of which could be covered by the congregation, necessitating loans from the ladies of the Baptist Church, as well as the Taiban Savings Bank. The first sermon, given by Reverend John R. Gass, was sparsely attended due to cold weather.
