New Richmond United Methodist Church

- Highlights for the Methodist of New Richmond include the original building in 1835 called The Old Brick Church. A frame building replaced this church in 1853. A frame church was erected where the present church is in the year 1888 costing $3400. Rev. James Loder was then pasture with the building being completed under Samuel R. Tribby and Rev. George Switzer dedicating it. Brick was added to the outside of a church built in 1918. Rev. John Sayre, chaplain during WWII went to the service of his country. Several projects took place for remodeling and the like. In 1973, Pat Payne, then a member of the church created the "I Am a Methodist," stamp. Mission work has been done by many members.
