Rural Union Chapel  (Please contact us if you have a photo of this Chapel to share).


(Note from Helen Blaha - I'd been searching for a photo for a long time. Today Marla Lampi posted in on the Owen-Withee FaceBook page. She said she saw it at a family reunion she attended today. Exciting find!)



Eddie Porath reported that the Rural Union Chapel stood on the SE corner of Section 4 in Green Grove.  It was conducted by parishioners, and connected to the West Beaver Church.  He believes the building was taken down by the Buss family in about 1951.  Later, someone built a basement there and had a mobile home on the property.  Eddie Porath's wife, Anna Mae, lived in that mobile home with her mother for a time.  Later, a young man named "Ewert" lived there and then died in a fire in the mobile home.  Eddie Porath's house is built on the basement on which the mobile home stood.

There is a cross shown on the SE corner of Section 4 of Green Grove, on the Frank Juntunen property, in the 1956 Clark County Plat Book.  It's still there in the 1964 plat book, when the surrounding property was owned by W. and C. Hingiss."  Helen Blaha
