This church model is the newest by Carolyn Johnson. This time she chose to make a model of St. Genevieve in Las Cruces, in southern New Mexico. It was built in 1897, using red bricks shipped by the brand new train service. The brick walls were constructed outside the existing older adobe church,built in 1859, and then the adobe walls were torn down. It has two massive towers which are 44 feet tall.
