USA Tubs Church, USA, December 2016

Recommended Posts

It's been a little bit since I've posted anything but that doesn't mean I've been slacking on exploring. The last week of December and early January me and my exploring pal decided it was a good time to get down and dirty scouting, researching, and exploring places here around Birmingham, since he had a few weeks off from college classes. Despite a recent revival in the downtown area of Birmingham, it's still a town filled with lots of blight, and is consistently mentioned as one of the more dangerous big city in the country. A blight filled town is great from an exploring standpoint, not great from any other standpoint.

 

But on with the pics.

 

I unfortunately haven't been able to find much of any information about this little church tucked away in the ghetto. About all I know is that it's an old Methodist church. It's very nice and impressive from the outside, but unfortunately the inside has been victim to some terribly cheap renovations. The good shepherd stained glass window is still very impressive however.

      Construction began in 1911 but completion of the original design did not occur until the early 1930s. The institution was planned as a "farm colony," whereby patients were put to work raising animals and growing food. Superintendent Charles S. Little told the New York Times: "In order to make this plan a success, it is necessary to begin to train the feeble minded when they are children. The feeble minded, if taken at an early age can be trained to do things better than if the education of which they are capable is postponed until the less pliable years." The site was named for William Pryor Letchworth, who served on the New York State Board of Charities from 1873 to 1896. Letchworth Village was one of the largest and most progressive facilities for the mentally retarded in the United States. Situated on 2000 acres of farmland with the Towns of Haverstraw and Stony Point. It was designed as a self-supporting community comprised of 130 field stone buildings.
      The facility closed on March 31, 1996, but administrative offices remained open until 2002.
