St. James Episcopal Church, Riverton, Fremont Co., Wyoming

Floating loose in a photo album was this unidentified photograph of a church.

In order for my dad to have taken a picture of this church, it had to be one that had meaning for the family. The logs indicate a rural church rather than a city or suburban building. My best memory was Wyoming since I thought I had been in this church. I could not have remembered any of the churches in Montana. I googled Riverton, Wyoming to see if this inside matched the outside of photo of the Episcopal Church. Totally NOT. I had never seen that building before.

I emailed the church, sent a photo, and asked if this was a possibly the inside of a church they would have used in the late 1950s or very early 1960s.

It was, and they were delighted to have a copy.

My best guess is April or May of 1961, after Easter, since the lilies are still up.

Ida Sherwood Bettis is my paternal grand mother. Aunt Clara is my great aunt. I can remember every nooks and crany of that house and yard...
