Christ Episcopal Church History collection
Scope and Contents
Rev. Stanley gives the early history of the church, along with the names of missionaries, ministers, and rectors who served the congregation. On page 6, he lists the daughter churchs which were organized with the support of Christ Church. Rev. Stanley states that "on Sunday evenings especially the congregations are largely composed of visitors and strangers." (Page 7) From pages 8-11, memorials and gifts are recorded with the names of their donors. On pages 11-12, Rev. Stanley wrote "A Quiet Spot in City's Bustle" describing the church's location on the Circle as "woven into the city's business life in a way that makes it part of it." On page 12, William M. Herschell's article in the Indianapolis News entitled "Interior Impressively Beautiful" is reprinted. Page 13 has the poem by Maude Elizabeth Pate entitled "The Chimes of Christ Church." The last page reprints three deeds of money and land to the church.
