Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Blackburn Collection of Pullman Community Congregational Church Records was compiled during the 1965-1977 period by Charles and Alice Blackburn. The Blackburns were active members of the Church and involved in many types of committee work. Charles was a member of the Board of Deacons, and the Self-Study Commission; Alice was a member of the Board of Trustees and the Church Council, and they both were involved the weekly Sunday night discussion groups held at the Church. The Community Congregational Church itself was founded in 1886 and has been a continuous part of Pullman since that time. Despite serious hardships and difficulties, the building was lost in the great fire of 1890 which destroyed a large part of the town, the Community Congregational Church has remained an active part of the community's religious life. For a more detailed history of the Church see the earlier register of the church's records, Cage 314.
