Evangelical United Brethren, Paoli, IN

May 25, 2017

The family tree of Methodism in the United States (and Canada, I suspect) is complex: 19th century fragmentation over social issues like slavery, and mid-20th century merging of several groups with remarkably similar names. The “United” in UMC comes from the Evangelical United Brethren, part of the German Reformed tradition. Many EUB buildings are hidden today behind the UMC moniker.

The Arts & Crafts character of this delightful EUB church in Paoli, Indiana puts a date of about 1910-1914. It was soon outgrown, however, and replaced with another non-A-A building.
