Methodist Episcopal Church, Bemidji, MN

November 21, 2018

Bemidji’s Methodist Episcopal church appears in this 1914 Sanborn Fire Insurance map, with a balcony clearly indicated just inside the two street facades. The location of Sunday school facilities isn’t clear. This has to be one of the homeliest buildings I’ve yet run across. It remains, with major additions toward the north.

Could this be a case of building the Sunday school first, and then constructing the auditorium when funds allowed?
