Lincoln, Lancaster County, Neb.: Congregational church
Size: 3 volumes on 1 reel of microfilm
The Butler Avenue Congregational Church (Lincoln, Neb.) was organized in May of 1895. It purchased a building at 1200 Butler Avenue from the Baptist Church, and for several years the Vine Congregational Church also held services there. The congregation was served by two women ministers: Laura H. Wild, 1901-1905 and Mrs. Rosa L. Robb, 1922-1928. Membership declined during the 1930s and 1940s, and the building became the Belmont Community Center. The building was sold in the 1950s.
