Ever found any pix of the INSIDE of the Church of our Father in DC?
Fascinating about Manchester. Lovely steeple-house. Small town west of Dubuque, east of Waterloo. Wonder when they closed? Did WW1 kill them, or the Great Depression?
Marti, surprisingly, I’ve not.
Derek, something even earlier. The church had just been bought by the local Grange in 1911, after having sat empty for several years.
Wow about the Grange! I had heard of a number of Universalist buildings in Iowa that were purchased by Masonic lodges. Same for a few church buildings in Ohio (specifically Greenville, OH and Attica, OH).
