searcy ar old methodist church picture

Old, old picture of the Methodist Church.

While digging through my treasures, I found this picture of the Searcy Methodist Church.  Look at the mud in the road in front and the long fence in front of it.  I have forgotten wheather that was a house or another church in the background. Perhaps someone will remember and be able to tell us.  There was also no date but Google says it dates back to 1877 and is located at 304 N. Main St.

That is a very old photo.  I think photography is something that pretty much began in the mid 1860s.

Barbara, you need to review some of the old posts about the First Methodist Church. Start with this one.  Then see this one.

That photo is the first one I have seen from the side.

When I was 8 years old I lived across the street from the church. I had two piano recitals there. Also attended the church socials there with Harold Gene Sullivan.

Don, thanks for bringing those old blogs back to life.  This one is also the only one I have seen from the side.  Was the companion a house or the church that once was there?
