RG4208.AM:  St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church (Lincoln, Neb.)

Records:  1926-1985

Lincoln, Lancaster County, Neb.:  Episcopal church

Size:  1 reel of microfilm and 1 oversized folder


St. Matthew’s Mission was organized in 1925 to aid Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in serving the growing area of south Lincoln. It has always occupied a church building at 24th and Sewell Streets. In January of 1934 it gained the status of an independent parish. In 1939 a parish house was dedicated, and in 1956 an educational building was constructed.


This collection of the records of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church of Lincoln, Nebraska, consists of eight volumes on one reel of microfilm and one oversized folder of architectural drawings. The first two volumes contain a record of communicants (members), baptisms, confirmations, marriages, and burials for the first decade of the church’s existence. In later years, each of these has been recorded in a separate volume.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
