Related Items/Publications: WESLEY METHODIST CHURCH The services of the Methodist Episcopal Society were held in a small schoolhouse in the Cleveland Location beginning in 1867 until the first church was built in 1869. In 1891, a foundation for a new church building was laid on north Third Street, but economic conditions and labor strife halted the project. Later the Trebilcock Brothers acquired the Third Street property and Ishpeming Greenhouses were constructed on the foundation. A new church was eventually built on the site of the original church on the northeast corner of Division and Second Streets. The building, pictured here, was completed in 1903 and later welcomed the congregations of the Cleveland Avenue Methodist Church and the Finnish Methodist Church in mergers which ultimately resulted in the congregation which now worships under the name of Wesley United Methodist Church. The current church building on Hemlock Street was consecrated in 1966 and the old structure was razed in 1972 following a fire. The lot now contains an apartment building.
