Chapter  38 - Eau Claire Churches

Norwegian Methodist Episcopal Church

(-as transcribed from page 535)

In 1885, a class of Norwegian Methodist Episcopalians was formed under the direction of Rev. O. Jacobson. The organization of this church was the result. The meetings and services were held in the hall of the Young Men's Christian Association. The Rev. E. Hanson was the first pastor. Under his administration a lot was purchased on Chestnut street and Fifth avenue and a church built in 1887. It was a frame structure, with a seating capacity of 300. There was also a class room which accommodated about eighty persons. After performing the duties of his office two years and establishing the organization on a solid basis, Mr. Hanson was succeeded by Rev. P. Hanann, who served two years. He was followed by Rev. O. Kristensen, who served nine months, when Rev. F. A. Scarvie was called in 1891.
