Old Highland Methodist Church - 1932

When I was living in Highland across the road from the church, on Sunday mornings, it was one of my chores to get the fire going in the old Warm Morning heat stove, before Sunday School started. The first time that I was in Sunday School was in this church on January 8, 1939
