Bonnie View Church

Bonnie View Church – SE 15-26-06 W3

In 1928, after filling the school house to capacity every Sunday, the Bonnie View Church opened its doors, free of debt. What makes this church so remarkable is that the members of the congregation provided all the labor and funding for construction. By the congregations’ own perseverance and canvassing for funds, no money was used from the churches’ coffers. The congregation found pride in their resourcefulness but also in the workmanship in the building. Even today, the attention to detail is especially evident in the main auditorium. Many members of the community still have strong ties to the Bonnie View Church and wish to see it stand for years to come. The Bonnie View Church was a place of unions, worship and gatherings for the area for over 30 years. It has great architectural value, as well as historical importance to so many people.
