125 years ago today: The first service was held in the Lakeside Community Church on February 9, 1896. Here is one of the earliest photos of the old church. Note the absence of the manse (built in 1911) and the social hall (1914). Pastor George C. Butterfield led parishioners in the initial service. The building was officially dedicated the following March 29th. It still stands as the home of the Lakeside Historical Society and one of the oldest buildings in our historic downtown.
