Window Shape: 2 (rectangle)

Date of Window: 1868

Subject/Title of Window: Epworth League

Brief Description of Subject: The Epworth League was the equivalent of today's Youth Fellowship. My mother had been sent to Wisconsin to live with her grandmother, as her mother had died and her father was very ill. She remembered sending money back to Michigan for that window.

Memorial names were in these panels. I think this panel was the bottom of three sections of a window. The rolled glass was made by steel rollers passing over it. These panels were mounted to swing in to aid ventilation. I bought these windows from a garage where they were stored.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
