Well, you probably thought you had endured the last of my history lessons when we finished the Bicentennial in 2016. You would be wrong. Now we are working backwards. We are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the construction of THIS building in 2019. Let me give you a little background and perspective on this event.
The year was 1865. In July of 1865 the US Secret Service was initiated. Unfortunately it was 3 months too late for Abraham Lincoln. Union Presbyterian Church was entering it's 50th year in the little stone building located in the parking lot across the road from where we are today.
