"FENTON UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

In March 1837 the Reverend Washington Jackson formed a Methodist congregation in Dibbleville (present-day Fenton) at the home of Levi Warren. Warren donated land and the first church was built in 1853. Its brick walls collapsed during the construction of the basement. A new brick church was built in 1869 and it burned in 1929. In 1930 the congregation laid the cornerstone for the present church, the third on this site. After delays during the Depression, this Neo-Gothic church was dedicated in 1938."

"SAINT JUDES EPISCOPAL CHURCH

On May 3, 1858, the Reverend Henry Banwell held Fenton's first Episcopal service for the Ladies Mite Society. The society formally organized as Saint Jude's Episcopal Church on July 18, 1859. In 1860 members built their first church on this site, which was deeded to the parish by William and Adelaide Fenton of Flint. The present Romanesque Revival church, designed by Pratt and Koeppe of Bay City was completed in 1893."

Cool pics. Had you ever been to Fenton when the Downtown area was closed to traffic. It has been a few years now since they opened it back up. I think they closed it sometime in the 70's and turned it into some kind of outdoor mall, or something like that. Back in the mid to late 90's (back in, like it was 50 years ago) they reopened it amid quite a bit of controversey. I think it helped the area though.

You missed Linden. Not a bad downtown and a pretty quiet to boot.

I was planning on going there but it was getting dark by the time I got there so I had to start heading home. I will stop by Linden next time I go up to visit my grandparents though.
