Flashback Friday

It's Easter weekend and our #FlashbackFriday is history that dates back to the 1910s. The Tiskilwa Mennonite Church, now the Tiskilwa Bible Church, was first organized during a local meeting on November 23, 1911. It would become the eighth church serving Tiskilwa, showing the strong community ties to religion.

Plans to build the church started in 1912 and on May 15, 1913, the church building was dedicated. It still stands at 235 West Main Street. Of special note: This charming little church was designed by local architect Edward Quick, the son of George Quick.

The exterior photo was taken when St. Jude's Episcopal Church (later moved to Bryant Woods in Princeton) was still standing to the south. The interior photo shows one of our first Walk Tiskilwa events (circa 2007) when the four churches along Main Street welcomed visitors on the Saturday afternoon following Christmas.
