CHURCH HISTORY A brief history of the organi- zation of the Methodist church reveals that the first religious; organization in the village of Mount Pulaski, after its estab- lishment in 1836, was the Metho- dist society which was organiz- ed at the home of Dr. John Clark in 1841. Among the early pastors were the Rev. Samuel Clampett, Rev. Samuel H. Martin and Rev. Har- din Wallace and the meetings were held in the home of Dr. Clark and the village school- house. The Rev. Peter Cartwright famous pioneer minister and presiding elder of the district at the time, frequently held meet- lags here. The present pastor, the Rev. F. E. Neumeyer is serving his 14th consecutive year as pas- tor of this congregation. In 1848 a movement was start- ed by the Methodist society to build a church and Dec. 12, 1849 an organization meeting was held and the following were elec- ted the first church trustees:u 3ohn Hurry, John Clark, Norman Norton, James J. Snyder and $ohn Downing. May 21, 1841 a lot was secured at the corner of Vine and Jefferson streets, the site of the present church, and a small building was erected thereon. As the congregation prospered and grew, a large building was erected on the same site in 1884 at a cost of $3,000. This church was dedicated Nov. 9, 1884. The present church building was erected in 1907, using the old building as a basis. During the pastorate of Rev. James Reynolds in 1923 the church base ment was enlarged, making ac- commodations for a large dining and assembly room. ..see the......
