Back to the future: Historic church still beckons
The little clapboard church in Kinnickinnic went up shortly after the Civil War when Ulysses S. Grant was president.
Built for $2,000, it opened in December 1868 and was shared by the area's Methodists and Congregationalists for services on alternate Sundays.
The Methodist design included pews with a divider down the middle keeping men and women on opposite sides. A bell in the tower was reportedly given by a Mississippi steamboat captain.
