Keeping History Alive
In the year 1841, nearly two-dozen members of a Presbyterian Church in Beaver Meadows left to start a new mission church of their own. Those members found their way to Sugarloaf, where they built the Brainerd Presbyterian Church. Still in its’ current location of Main Street in Sybertsville, the church is now closed and only opens twice a year. Easter and Thanksgiving services are offered, but do not have electricity, so the masses are lit by candlelight. A group of dedicated volunteers are now trying to keep the history of the church and the grounds alive. Two members tell News 13 they are holding a concert for future generations to get a first hand look at the church with hopes that more people become involved in reserving its’ existence by becoming members. The free outdoor concert will be held Sunday June 10 at 2pm at the church. If you are going to attend, you are asked to bring a chair. Take a seat outside and listen to the sound of “A Touch of Brass”. Light refreshments will be served.
