This morning while I was trying to think about what to write this week, I read in the newspaper that many persons are being married today (12-12-12). With weddings being in the news I want to share with you a special place in Webster City that is a great place to have weddings.
The Mulberry Center Church is located in Wilson Brewer Park (220 Ohio). Listed below is a brief history of the church.
Mulberry Center Church was dedicated on July 18, 1890 as a United Brethren Church with 52 members. In 1946 they joined with the Evangelical Church to become the Evangelical United Brethren Church. In 1968 they united with the Methodist Church to become the United Methodist Church. They had always been associated and shared a minister with the United Methodist Church in Webster City. In 1990 the two churches united and built a new church, Faith United Methodist Church in Webster City.
The Mulberry Center Church moved to Wilson Brewer Historic Park on January 23, 1995. The name for the church comes from one of the early settlers, Mrs. Phil Morris. Being so depressed by the flat, grazing land, she sent to her native Wisconsin for several Mulberry trees and with their rapid growth and tendency to increase, the area was well supplied with Mulberry trees.
This past summer private funds have been raised and the entire interior has been remodeled. Since then we have had two weddings and have more weddings schedule for 2013. Carolynn Miller our volunteer host has visited “The Little Brown Church in the Vale” and we hop to model the Mulberry Center Church and have it available for weddings, baptisms, and memorial services. If you would like to tour the church for a possible wedding, please call me at 515-832-9193. Have a great week.
