Mt. Pleasant Church

Methodist Episcopal Church in Condit
On a 1909 postcard shared by Ken Crowl

According to Baskins in the 1880 History of Delaware County and Ohio, page 593,  a group of Old School Presbyterians organized a society and built a church in Trenton township but they sold out to the Methodists and built Mount Pleasant Methodist Episcopal Church in Porter Township.

Note the two front doors, one for men and one for women to enter.  At some time the doors were removed and a center door was added.
Sitting on a hill on Condit Road in Porter Township, the Mt. Pleasant Church, is still in good shape although it could use a coat of paint.  I remember going there for socials and to see the church women make applebutter in the fall.  The Mt. Pleasant Cemetery wraps around the church.
