Editor's Note: We have an answer!

Photo from De Warn.
De writes:  "It is of the original Zion Lutheran Church on Institute St. next to the Frewsburg school building. This picture was taken in the late teens because the new school building was built in 1922.

In 1957 Zion sold the building to Frewsburg Central School district, and a new church building was built on Falconer St.  The school used the former church building for several years  as a band room.  It was later demolished and the school expanded the building. The school swimming pool now occupies that space.

Joyce and I were married in that church in 1953."

I love the photo and I love that it was such an important building to you.  Thank you for sharing.
I don't think Mabel did too bad a job of painting it. :-)
