EDENTON CHRISTIAN UNION CHURCH
by Evelyn Matiin
The Christian Union Church of Edenton was organized in July of 1864. The church was situated adjacent to the Masonic Hall, and was the first Christian Union Church built in the State of Ohio. Members of Edenton Lodge #332 who were prominent in the organization and served as Elders, Trustees and other officers of the Church were: Andrew Jackson, James Crosson, Silas Muchmore, John Prickett, J. H. Prickett, Hiram Prickett, M. S. Pickiehiemer, W. McKinney, William Palmer and Theodore Little. It is thought the Church ceased to have services in the 1920's, and was torn down in 1939.
