The Presbyterian Church at Alder

The Alder Presbyterian Church holds a lot of memories for people.

Diane Purdy Arnold says, “I believe that this was moved out of Old Alder. I used to get to ring the bell for Sunday School after Uncle Charlie died.

“I was the flower girl for one of the Campbell girl’s wedding here, 1949-50,” says Carla Harting Altheide.
