Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Community Congregational Church was founded in 1886 and has been a continuous part of Pullman since that time. Despite considerable difficulties and hardships, such as the fire of 1890 and the flood of 1910, the church remained an active part of Pullman's religious life.
