 Methodist Church, 1885
Methodist Church, Dedicated July 24, 1885.
“When entering the building, a person is surprised by the novel yet beautiful finish of the interior — especially the ceiling, which reaches to the rafters, and in which the finest quality of cedar lumber was used; being laid in diagonal sections. Unique and artistic trestle work on the ceiling lends addition strength to the roof. The summit of the spire is 66 feet from the ground. Mr. J.S. White, the architect and builder, informs us that the cost of the building and lot will hardly exceed $1,500.”
THE EYE, July 4, 1885.
