Avon


This is Avon Methodist Church. Originally built in the late 1880s and it has been in continual use ever since. It is a beautiful church and that is my car right beside it. It is on Avon-Allen rd. In the late 1800s when all these little towns were founded they each had their own church although they were just a few miles apart. well until the whole area was diked and drained travel specially in the winter was by canoe or you would just get stuck in the mud.

Were they all Methodist? They were originally that demomination here. My ggg grandfather was a circuit rider for them.

Went to Frisco and will send you the other church picture. I just need to look up some info on it to give you.
