Clear Creek Church near Huntington

This is a classic white clapboard country church. Clear Creek Church was built in 1869 to replace a wood frame building that burned down. It is located a few miles north of Huntington on Clear Creek Road in Clear Creek Township, Huntington County. When the population shifted to urban areas membership dwindled enough to close the church, but it was revived in the 1930s. It is still an active church and is said to be the oldest standing church building in the county.


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.
