Historic Episcopal church

Churches were among the earliest buildings built when the first settlers cleared the land in northern Indiana. Shown is a church in Bristol, Elkhart County, that doesn’t date back to the arrival of the first settlers but it’s fairly close. Built in the 1840s, St. John of the Cross Episcopal Church is on the National Register of Historic Places. Simply put, it is a historic jewel. Few church buildings, or any buildings for that matter, this old still stand. The nearby cemetery is also on the National Register of Historic Places.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
