Jesse Lee Methodist Church

For nearly a century, this is what the northern corner of Main and Catoonah Streets looked like. In 1965, this beautiful Methodist church was torn down to make way for the brick building that houses stores and offices today. What a shame!

In the background, right center, you'll notice the old parsonage. Fortunately, that was not razed, and still stands today, housing shops and offices -- a fine example of adaptive use of an old house.

In this hand-colored Abertype postcard from the 1920s, Main Street is to the right and Catoonah Street runs across the front of the card, just out of view at the bottom. Note the old car parked at the edge of Catoonah Street in the lower left corner.

Scans and enlarged reproductions of all our postcards are available. See the Index Page.
