Bethlehem Lutheran Church
This is the oldest church in the Colehour neighborhood, later known as the East Side. The congregation was founded in 1874 by Fred Egger to serve many of the early German residents of the area. On the lower right side of the view is the original church building constructed in 1874. The larger structure on the left is shown as it appeared at its dedication in 1891.  The original church became the first home of Gallistel School.
