GREENCASTLE, Ind. – The local history of our churches in Indiana will be the focus of the annual meeting of the Indiana United Methodist Historical Society from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 27.

DePauw University will host the event as part of its 175th anniversary observance, having been founded by the Indiana Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the 1830s.

Historic and present-day relationships between the church and the United-Methodist-related schools in Indiana will be explored. For more information or to register, contact Richard Stowe at or 765-759-9321.

The Historical Society also is testing a new service for church historians, providing expert answers to questions emailed to the same address.
