A new building was erected in 1910. In 1924 the building was sold to the Central Conference, which took over responsibility for the work. A. M. Eash served continuously as pastor 1900-1935, except for some interruptions in 1919 ff. The high point of membership was 72 in 1935, with over 300 in the Sunday school. In 1940 the work was closed and the building sold.
