Mystery Church: Columbia-Union, now Living by Faith

By Ed Waggener

Of course the Mystery Church photo, posted August 8, 2017, was no challenge for Adair County Historian Mike Watson, whose letter contained all correct information but differed slightly from what was defined in the question - only slightly.

The church style is one replicated all over South Central Kentucky - maybe across America, and we felt that would be a study in itself, valuable enough to continue the mystery, one, to see if anyone would associate the author we were looking for - Albert Capwell Wyckoff - one of the most prolific and definitely one of the most widely known of the Adair County Authors. (See Adair County authors: Albert C. Wyckoff by, of all people, Mike Watson.
