A milestone was reached at the Christian Church of Moulton, 103 N. Vine St., recently. As the first Christian church in Appanoose County, a small wood-framed building was originally constructed in 1868. It was replaced in 1890 with a larger wood-framed building and served the Moulton congregation for 37 years before being leveled by a devastating fire in 1927. Through insurance and member donations, $10,000 was quickly raised to build the current brick church building. The cornerstone was laid 85 years ago on Nov. 21, 1927. The building was finished over the winter, dedicated in March of 1928 and is still in use today. An educational wing was built in 1968 to serve the growing needs of the church.
