First Congregational Church, Turton, South Dakota (Spink County)

The National Register of Historic Places lists the First Congregational Church in Turton to have been built in 1893.  The plaque on the church shows 1892, but either way an older pioneer church in South Dakota.  The “Country Gothic” style features a center tower and steeple with an open belfry and spire.  The church was locked when I stopped by, so I included an interior photo taken through the window.  Its history says that services were discontinued in 1963.
