Calvary Methodist Church to open in Brownsburg (1957)

source: The Republican (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, May 16, 1957 - page 1, column 3:

Property owned by Mrs. Joseph F. Sheetz, Brownsburg, has been purchased for the site of a new Calvary Methodist Church at Brownsburg, according to Louis Reynolds, pastor.

The site is at the south edge of Brownsburg where two new subdivisions are in the process of completion.

The tract, containing over six acres, is located at 409 South Green Street. The Sheetz home will be used for church activities until construction of the new building.

The construction will begin as soon as adequate funds are raised and architect's plans are approved.

Members of the committee for selection of the site were William Patterson, chairman; Fred Hallett, Earl Neese, Walter Bertzing and Leo Newby.

[NOTE: The Green Street location was near the intersection of Tilden Road. In 2006 the church (which is now known as Calvary United Methodist Church) moved to the west end of Northfield Drive in Brownsburg, across from the Lowe's store and the Kohl's shopping center. The former site on Green Street then became the site of the Brownsburg Meadows retirement home].
