Walnut Street Church of Christ, Sherman TX.

The historic Church of Christ building is located on East Cherry and South Walnut in Sherman, Texas and is owned by the Sherman Museum.  According to a staff person at the Sherman Museum, located next door, much of their 20,000 plus collection is stored here.  What drew me to take a closer look were the stained glass windows, all 48 of them (http://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth256954).

Never had I paid much attention to the property although we have driven up and down Walnut innumerable times.  It was not until our tour of the museum (the Carnegie Building) during their Dino Days exhibit did I have any interest in seeing what was at the church building.  At this point as I stood just under the neck of “Bucky-the T-Rex” did I ask how we could get inside and could I take photos.  Obviously it is not open to the public for it is for storage only.  My request for a private tour was denied.
