Mystery Church: What a difference 6 decades make

2017-09-10 - Living by Faith Church, 3041 Edmonton Road, Columbia, KY - Photo Original by Joseph Allison, Nu-Art Studio; Latest by Ed Waggener.
The church on the left was, in 1956, the Union campus of the Columbia-Union Presbyterian Church, after the two churches merged. Later it was the Gradyville United Methodist Church, and today is home to Living by Faith Church. A number of changes have been made, including the addition of a Fellowship Hall at the rear of the church, the heating system no long requires a chimney and was removed when the new roof was added. Adair County Historian Mike Watson correctly identified the mystery church, and, was correct in naming E.L. Dohoney as a famous author identified with the sanctuary, though we had in mind Albert Capwell Wycoff, who was pastor of Columbia-Union Presbyterian Church from 1946-1953 according to N.M. Berley - and hoped someone might also find an association with Mark Twain's Lampton lineage. The photo is from a program booklet, "Columbia-Union Presbyterian Church, Columbia, KY, 1803-1956" by historian N.M. Berley.
