St. Paul's United Church of Christ
5323 West Margaret Street
Monee, Illinois 60449

One view of the old church.  A new front entry, including a bell tower, was added in 1894, greatly altering the look of the church.  According to the church  records, when the new church was completed, the original building was sold at public auction.  It was purchased by Philip Bischmann for $230 and moved to the fair grounds where it was used as an exhibition hall for agricultural products, food, arts and textiles.  (Sorry, it's no longer there.)  The bells were moved to the new church in 1915.
