Rogers Park Methodist Episcopal Church




                      This particular postcard was mailed in 1912 to Belgium of all places. This church used to stand at Ashland and Greenleaf on the northwest corner. At least that is what can be surmised by looking at the Google maps view of the intersection. Currently on that corner is a 1950's style apartment building. On the other corners are the Field elementary school and two old frame Victorian houses. This postcard could be all yours for three simoleons on E-bay.

That's a beauty! I can't recall whether I ever saw it. That would have been a long time ago. Perhaps another visitor here will remember it differently, but I think it burned down, probably in the early 1960s. The congregation was offered the use of the nearby church at Ashland and Morse for their services. I think that church was Presbyterian. Over time, the Methodists took over and today it is the United Church of Rogers Park.

Yes a nicer than usual looking church, makes sense that it burned down, which is a shame.

Thanks for info Helen.
