The church closed its doors in October of 2017. Built by Swedish immigrants in 1879 it is still structurally sound. In 1964 the building was raised off its original foundation and the hardworking members of the congregation dug out and installed a cinder block basement. In October of 1975 running water and indoor plumbing was added. Ricky and I spent a little less than 5 months gutting the basement, remodeling and having a new roof installed before we moved downstairs in June of 2018.
We have learned a great deal during the remodeling process and over the past few years as we continue to go through year-round living in Little Plum Valley. If you are ever considering buying a church, give us a call. We continue to update our list of ‘questions we should have asked’ and would be happy to share what we have learned.
