#176 Walnut Creek Methodist Church

1370 Locust St. -- 1872

The village’s first house of worship, built in 1872, originally stood on Main Street on land donated by Homer Shuey. By the early 1900s, the land on Main Street had great commercial value, so the church was moved to this site on Locust Street (then School Street), on land donated by James Stow. In the 1950s, the congregation built a larger church on Sunnyvale Avenue, north and beyond downtown.
