BRADFORD COUNTY PA


Austinville ME

  Description: Description: austinville

Location: Austinville Road, village of Austinville
Municipality:

County:
Bradford
State:
PA

Historic Conference:
    Central New York Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church

Journal references:

Brief History:
    Austinville originally had two churches.  The Baptist and Methodist building were erected in 1873 and 1898 respectively.  The 1900 Bradford County Directory of Churches lists this as having services every two weeks Sunday evening, with Sunday School every Sunday afternoon.  In 1910 the Baptist church burned down, and the two congregations worshiped together in the Methodist building for seven years, until the new Baptist building was completed in 1917.  Neither congregation was strong, and the seven years of cooperation had brought the two bodies together.  In 1920 the two congregations agreed to share a pastor, meet six months n one building and six months in the other.  By 1922 it was apparent that the new Baptist building was the superior facility, and all worship services were held there.  The Methodist building was used as a band hall, and the bell from the Methodist church was moved to the Baptist building. 
    In 1937 the two congregations officially organized into the Austinville Union Church, with no denominational affiliation and membership open to all.  The older picture above shows the Methodist building on the left.

Final disposition:
    The Methodist building was torn down by Joe Winters, who used the materials to build a garage behind his house.  The site is now a grassy lot across from the Union Church.

Brief History:
    The 1900 Bradford County Directory of Churches lists this as being served alternate Sunday mornings, with Sunday School every Sunday.  This property was deeded by Daniel Miller and his wife Hannah on October 31, 1846, to the Methodist Protestant Society of Albany township "to erect thereon a house of worship and a burial ground."  This congregation hosted the 1896 annual sessions of the Pennsylvania Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church.  The church appears to have been supplied until 1927, when the entire New Albany charge disappears from the appointment list.  The charge at one time or another appears to have included appointments at Littleville, New Albany and Norway Hill - and at one time the charge supposedly included three church buildings and a parsonage.  The founding pastor is reported to be Rev. Zephaniah Lane (1796-1873), a farmer-preacher who is buried in the cemetery at Luthers Mills.  The final Methodist Protestant pastor was Rev. C.E. Vail (?-1941), who died a member of the Central New York Conference of the Methodist Church, after which the congregation had various affiliations.

Final disposition:
    The building houses an active independent community church pastored by Rev. Samuel Jordan, who lives in the house across the road and to the west.

Rockwell as superintendent.  Mr. Rockwell also proceeded to organize Wednesday evening prayer meetings and to hold Sunday evening preaching services.  Winter revival meetings resulted in several conversions, and soon there was talk of erecting a church building.  Ground was donated by M.D. Andrus, and a frame sanctuary was ready for dedication services on September 24, 1899.   Church services continued in the building until 1921, when a congregation was organized and a building erected in nearby Beech Flats,

Directions: 
    The Prattville Cemetery pictured above, looking east, is actually in Susquehanna County by less than 100 yards.  The church stood along the road west of the cemetery and was half in Bradford County (Pike township) and half in Susquehanna County (Middletown township).  It is believed that the foundations in the nearby woods, just off the picture to the left, are those of the church building.  That half of the building was the only church in Middletown township.  The church at Prattville appears to have been erected by a class that met regularly at Middletown Centre (Middletown township, Susquehanna County) in a building erect there by the residents for school and church purposes.  In the course of time, however, few Methodists remained at that location and it was deemed advisable to relocate to the west and erect a building.

Brief History:
    This building was erected in 1857.   The 1900 Bradford County Directory of Churches lists this as having church services by the pastor from East Canton every Sunday afternoon, preceded by Sunday School.  There were originally horse sheds to the west and south of the church.  The building originally had a balcony in the back, but in the 1920's a floor to ceiling partition was erected by the front of the balcony ― with the downstairs part remodeled into a kitchen and the former balcony made into a small upstairs room.  The West Leroy congregation merged into the East Canton congregation in 1942.

Final disposition:
    The building is now used as a garage.
