Methodist Episcopal Church

Sixteen Pioneers organized the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1829. The congregation dedicated it's first building in 1920. Detroit architects and church members Wells Butterfield and his daughter Emily Butterfield designed this Neo- Gothic structure. Francois Grenier of Detroit created the stained glass windows, including four that depict "Pioneers of Christendom." donated by former governor Fred Warner and his wife, Martha. Completed in 1922, the church and the adjoining community hall, which had a balcony and a stage, served as the center of Civic life into the 1940s. The church hosted numerous events-even Saturday night movies. The education building was completed in 1958.
