      Google Books has an article published in April 1960 about the construction of the Bad Heart Church* near Sexsmith, Alberta (built in the early '50s, and now used as a local community hall.)

      Father Dale, the priest who built this, was trained in architecture.

      This is the oldest ~known~ straw bale building in Canada, and is 60 or 61 years old this year. It cost $605.

      Here's the Tiny URL for the article, in case the above doesn't work.

      *The name comes from the nearby Bad Heart River, and/or the unincorporated rural area named Bad Heart, Alberta.

      Cheers,
