St. Anthony of Padua Chapel

-A A +A
1928. Conejos County 28

This mission church, which has no running water and no well, incorporates walls of the first (1880) church on the site. It is stuccoed adobe with a gable roof, an open bell tower, and stained glass windows. The flat ceiling of narrow beaded boards extends over the tiny choir loft at the rear with its propane-fired ceiling heater.
