Churches of Holt County

Christian Church
Benton Township

The Christian Church in Mound City is a frame building of subtantial character and fair appearance. It was erected in 1878. The organization, however, of which it is the outgrowth, existed before the civil war.

It now includes a membership of between one hundred and seventy-five and two hundred. In December, 1879, David Wetzel, the present (1882) minister, was chosen pastor.

The present church was dedicated on the third Sunday of February, 1881. The Sunday School, which includes over one hundred scholars, is under the direction of Mr. J. B. Denny, a representative druggist of the town.
