A policeman followed me as I circled the block several times to get an angle on this church. My readers might wonder why I did not park the car and walk instead to find just the right angle. Sometimes I don’t feel like it. I gave him a business card and link to my rural Texas gallery.
Chillicothe is on the way to Amarillo. Or it is on the way to Gainesville depending on how you look at things. This church located right on the edge of town is First United Methodist Church built in 1916. It has a historical marker right out front.
Like most towns along the 287 are along a railroad the first thing you see from a distance driving into town are the grain elevators. Chillicothe is also known as Iris Village. For a town of roughly 750, there is an interesting history and if you explore the town there are plenty of interesting things to photograph.
