Members - Rainstown Church A Virtual Cemetery created by: David Smith
Description: from an article on Union Township written by Jewell M. Dale who was married in 1935 to Rainstown area resident Maxine Rutledge in the only wedding performed in the Rainstown Church.: "The Rainstown Congregational Christian Church was built in 1895 on ground donated by Joe Keeney. The building was of wooden construction. The church was dedicated in 1896. Sunday School was first held in the afternoon, later giving away to morning. The church was discontinued, later sold and razed in 1960 for the Interstate 74 right-of-way." A nostalgic two part article on Rainstown written by a former resident, Edythe (Walter) McCraw, appearing in the Republican newspaper on September 5 and 12, 1968, has a considerable amount of detail on the Rainstown Church.
