Mosca United Methodist Church

-A A +A
1894. Southwest corner of Barker and 4th Ave.

This narrow, front-gabled building with clapboard siding and overhanging boxed eaves was erected for $178. An open cupola added in 1943 houses the bell from a disbanded Baptist church. The parsonage (1897), converted to a Sunday school in 1943, now has a layer of plaster over its frame construction. Inside the church, the beaded board ceiling is set in large diamond patterns, with the same beaded board used for the original pulpit.
