Holden Chapel - 1871
Holden Chapel - 1871

The members of Holden Class visited their friends and neighbors early in 1871, seeking funds for the building of a church in the center of Wayne Township, Montgomery County. They collected $5,000 which was more than they thought they needed. So, Plan B, a 48’ x 36’ brick church was built under the guidance of Joseph C. McElhany, a local carpenter. Limestone for the foundation came from a quarry on Taylorsville Road. The clay for the brick was dug from the land adjacent to and west of the church and fired on the school grounds across the road. To make the walls strong, every 8th course of brick was laid side by side, instead of end for end. The Gothic architecture featured a high steep roof and pointed arches in the steeple, windows and front door on Taylorsville Road. Named for our founding pastor, Samuel S. Holden, Holden Chapel was dedicated Nov. 12, 1871. We were just a little country church by the side of the road for 75 years.
