City of Spires Historical Museum and Foundation, 111 Fifth Street, Aurora, has announced summer plans which include a display of artwork by students who live in or attend school in the area served by South Dearborn Community Schools. Art students from grade five and up have been recruited by their art teachers to submit favorite artwork to be shown at the museum from June through September.
The museum is scheduled to be open on the first and third Sundays of each month from June through September from 1 – 4 P.M. Visitors will enjoy not only the wonderful variety of students’ renditions, but also the simple beauty and history of Aurora’s oldest standing house of worship. Built in 1848 for Aurora Baptists, the building was sold in 1874 to a German Reformed group, the ancestors of what became the First Evangelical United Church of Christ. Known locally as the “Fifth Street Church,” the facility was used for worship until early 2010 when it was handed over to a non-profit, member-based group which took the name “City of Spires Historical Museum and Foundation, Inc.” The facility is available for rental for a variety of purposes and includes the former sanctuary, a meeting room suitable for up to sixty guests, and a dining room which seats one hundred.
The mission of City of Spires is to preserve Aurora’s oldest church building as a representation of 19th century Ohio Valley worship and to provide a museum of local interest for the community at large. The former church is graced by charming ambiance which includes vibrant stained glass windows and a working pipe organ.
Admission to City of Spires is free, and in addition to the first and third Sunday hours, the museum is available for tours by appointment. Call (812) 926-0944 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or you can visit http://www.cityofspires.org/.
