Evangelical United Brethren, Van Wert, OH

August 17, 2016

Today’s United Methodist Church is an amalgam of denominations in the 1960s, principally the Methodist Episcopal church and the Evangelical United Brethren. That’s where the “United” comes from. This example of an E.U.B. building dates from far earlier in the century.

The prominent tower at the street corner suggests a radial auditorium with the pulpit located at the fulcrum. How the Sunday School relates to this is a guess on my part, but I’m hopeful this will prove to have been an A-A plan. There is a similar example in Hartford City, Indiana, and there may be others. Both of these seem to be gone.
