Historic First Baptist Church Engages Restoration Project|

First Baptist Church
Monday, April 20, will be entered as an historic date in the books of the First Baptist Church of Minnesota City. The deterioration of the foundation of the buildinghas been marked and carefully observed as church proprietors (First Baptist Ladies Aid)
have sought artisans for the repair work. R.J. Jurowski Construction, Whitehall, WI began the work on Monday, April 20. All Minnesota Citians should recognize the significance of the maintenance of this historic structure, the first church in Winona County, which now houses the archives of MCHA. The historic church is a fitting repository for area historical records. First Baptist Ladies are to be applauded for determination and persistence in execution of this project.
