Homecoming Held

The Annual St. Peter’s Homecoming was recently held at the “little church in the wildwood” on St. Peter’s Road south of Versailles. The little log church now covered in white clap board is believed to be the last log church in Darke County. The building now appears on the National Register of Historic Places and is only open on the third Sunday of September. The church remains much as it looked when it closed in 1905 for the lack of a German speaking congregation.

The Board of Trustees wishes to thank those in the community who took part in the worship service: the Lance Family for their gift of beautiful music before the service, to our organist, Karen Lawrence of Trinity and to soloist, Paul Neff, & accompanist Carla Hummel of St. Paul, North Star. A special thank-you is extended Rev. Bob Akins, of Trinity in Versailles and Friedens in Bloomer for leading worship. We also want to acknowledge our church sexton, Chalmer Unger, for keeping our church looking so nice. We appreciate those attending from Michigan, Virginia, and Arizona, as well as all across Ohio. Your assistance, attendance, and financial giving are appreciated.

Without these gifts we would not be able to maintain this historic site. If you were not able to attend and still wish to make a donation, you may do so by sending your gift of support in care of Richard Shumaker: 5958 Children’s Home Bradford Road, Greenville, Ohio 45331.

We thank-you again for your continuing support!
