Taiban is a small town about 100 miles north of Roswell and along the ATSF main line from Clovis to Albuquerque. On the edge of town sits a lonely, forgotten church.

I visited the First Presbyterian Church of Taiban in August of 1996 and took these pictures. It has changed–the mullions are gone as is a lot of paint. The climate of New Mexico is a bit hard on wooden structures, but they last a long time in that wet rot is rare. Sorry for the quality of my pictures. This is what happens when you attempt to take photos off a contact sheet.
When you see something you would like to photograph, don’t wait too long. The landscape is constantly evolving.
