History

Established: 1857, closed in 2010

Friedens United Church of Christ Church (also known as Friedens German Evangelical Church or Friedens Evangelical and Reformed Church) was founded in 1857 and closed in 2010. (The word Friedens means “peace” in German.) It was largely a German congregation. They first met in the basement of the Fairmount Presbyterian Church at 9th and Penrose until 1861. The church acquired land at 19th and Newhouse and the cornerstone was laid for the new church in August 1860. The following year, on 21 April 1861, the new church, a Gothic brick structure, was completed and dedicated.

Plans for a new church began in 1906 and the cornerstone for that facility was laid in July 1907. That English Gothic church at 1908 Newhouse served Friedens until it closed in 2010.
