World's Smallest Church. Church of the Mother Road

More and more people visit every day.

[Tess Kenna, 11/03/2013]

We hope not too many, or they won't be able to fit inside the self-proclaimed "World's Smallest Church."

Tiny Church of the Mother Road

It really is a two seater church and easy to miss. It's tucked in little plaza in between stores just a few steps from La Posada. I left a donation (or someone will take what they need).

Church of the Mother Road. Tiny Church of the Mother Road

Officially this is just the smallest church on Route 66, but it can compete as the smallest church in America. Only 7 x 4.5 feet, it has two benches and an altar and can seat two people and a minister. Built by a family in 2012, with lumber from the historic Skylark Bar (which was torn down at this spot), in memory of Leroy Austin Kenna, a long time Route 66 businessman. Its window is from Winslow's old Mormon church.

[Tess Kenna, 04/29/2012]

It looks like a tiny church that could only exist in a place that doesn't get much rain.
