What has changed since 1915?

As part of creating our new website we have uploaded some photographs of the meetinghouse. We plan on having a section of the site that uses images and narrative to document the history of our congregation.

Church Exterior from 1915

Send the Administrator an e-mail if you have additional photographs, images or documents that would be a good addition to the site.

Now for a challenge…

How many difference between the current meetinghouse and this photograph can you identify? Post them in the comments below. You can see a larger version the photograph here.

Bonus Question: What was the address of the parsonage in 1915?
