dome home
Quiet Dell, WV
Promise Christian Fellowship
Gilbert, WV
This dome home is probably from the 1960s or 1970s. I did not make note of the address for this and I can't find it at Google Street View. I'd love to hear from you if you know the location.

The Promise Christian Fellowship is housed in a geodesic dome. These domes were popular in the 1950s-1970s and are still being built. My guess is that this church building is probably fairly recent. [map]
