THE OLD LANDMARK A stone previously located above the Winchester Methodist Episcopal Church door, off State Road 9 near CR 700 S, has been returned to its place, at the concrete steps that once led into the building (also see undated photograph below). The church was badly damaged by severe weather in 1989 and eventually demolished. Services were last held around 1941, Tom Debaun said. His son, Jay Debaun, headed the effort. Also contributing to the cause were the elder Debaun’s sons, Tom Debaun and Mike Debaun, and his brother, Tim Debaun. Bruce Hill raised the steps back level and Scott Wampler and his crew performed the concrete and masonry work. A cemetery fund is held at Fifth Third Bank, and donations are welcome and appreciated. |
