AGNELLUS LAMMERT & JOHN GAW MEEM: COLLABORATIONS AT MCCARTYS & ACOMITA

Updated: Apr 20


In the 1930s Father Agnellus Lammert, a Franciscan pastor at Acoma and Laguna, collaborated with architect John Gaw Meem on four churches built by their respective pueblos. Meem provided plans and Lammert supervised construction of Santa María de Acoma in McCartys (1933), St. Mary Margaret in Paraje (1935), Sacred Heart in Mesita (1936), and St. Anne in Acomita (1940).


Attached in pdf is a short article by Frank Graziano on development of the two Lammert/Meem churches at Acoma Pueblo.
