Methodist Episcopal Church, Cuba, NY

September 15, 2017

The modest building on this postcard has already become a problem.

Cuba, New York is a small community with just three Protestant churches—Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian—but the current Methodist building is clearly a 19th century “Italianate” design, whereas this card shows a somewhat newer building. With those reservations, it is still an example—regardless where it may have been—of an A-B-a-b scheme.

  1. Another mystery. The OHS archives show that this congregation bought a new organ from M.P. Moller in 1915. and then purchased another from the same company only 2 years later. What prompts a church to buy a new organ and then get another only 2 years later? One suspects a fire, possibly prompting them to move into an older building?
