Latty Church, 1997. Lynn's grandfather, Fred Sielerman, helped build this frame church in 1905 after they tore down a brick church building. This building was torn down in 1999 because it was deteriorating and had become an attractive nuisance. Photo: Lynn Kopatich.

Shiloh Church? Herb Price says, "I went to the Des Moines County Historical Society and started scanning images of rural churches. Each photo has a catalog number and looking up that number in the society's inventory books may shed some light on what we have."

Shiloh Church? Herb continues, "Right now I have two images of Shiloh Church and I am not sure that the images are of the same church. If they are, that church had a major remodel."

Linn Grove Church.

The Presbyterians built this church in 1880 on West Main Street in Mediapolis. When they built a new church building in 1901, this one was sold to the Free Swedish Mission Church. This picture is from a postcard sent around 1910 and is marked Free Mission Church—no "Swedish." In July 1920, Joe Penland opened a theater in the church building. At some point the building was either moved or demolished and a house built on the site. Edna Penland, a long time Mediapolis piano teacher, lived in the house in the 1950's. Photo: Lynn Kopatich.
