The Upper Church
We will be celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Upper Church next year.
Although the formal dedication was in 1893, the building was completed in
1892. One way to acknowledge this anniversary is to look back at the history
of the church and focus on its rare unique characteristics. Both the beauty
and the historical nature of the building are worthy of many great memories.
Because so many current members of this congregation and other people who
live in the area have knowledge of the history, we are asking for some help.
If you know of a family member or community member who was involved in the
design and building this beautiful church, we’d love to hear about it.
Please contact the church office if you have stories you would like to
