Comprehensive History

English Lutheran Mission Church located on the southeast corner of Vine and Water Streets in, Orrville was established 6 January 1877. A building was erected in 1877. Sources found for this church were History of Wayne County, Ohio, Ben Douglas, 1878, page 694, History of Wayne County, Ohio, B.F. Bowen & Co., 1910, Vol. 1. page 253 and Wooster Daily Record, 6 Sep 1948. The Church, with ten members, was incorporated January 31, 1876, with the following trustees: Jesse Good, A. W. Bombarger, Otho Miller, G. G. Wear and A. McGriffin. March 28 A. C. Miller, M. D., of Cleveland, and J. H. Stoll, M.D., and wife in April, deeded grounds to the Trustees, thus securing to the church the entire block lying on the south-east corner of Vine and Water streets, for a consideration of $1,900. July 18, 1876, on these premises the society began the erection of a church. The corner-stone was laid September 3, Rev. H. L. Wiles, D. D., preaching the sermon. By October 13, 1877, the house was ready for occupancy. The church membership now numbers twenty, and with a flourishing Sabbath-school recently organized the work in the new church begins under favorable auspices. Rev. J. C. Kauffman is present pastor.
