1907 dedication book

In 1907 Leola United Methodist Church dedicated the brownstone church that we worship in weekly.  For the first time, we are publishing pictures of the original dedication book.  The booklet consists of the program of events for the week of the dedication, advertisements from local businesses and a history of the church.  Things are a lot different 100 years later.

Trivia Quiz:
A special speaker presented a talk (in native garb) about his homeland, what biblical land was he from?
How many advertisers are still in business today?
How many preachers (Rev.) participated over the week long event?

Special thanks to Historian Bill White for sharing from the Leola UMC historical archives.
