Oswego Prairie

This was a story we did on the Oswego Prairie United Methodist Church closing its doors after over 150 years of service.
What was once a booming church in a farming community has suffered with the shift away from small farms and the types of services people attend. Still pretty traditional in its approach to church, it is a place where the entire congregation knows each other, mainly because there are only 10 official members there.

The church is being taken over by another church whose congregation is booming. So much so that they have added services and outgrown their sanctuary and hold Sunday service in a gymnasium.
No immidiate plans are in effect as to the fate of Oswego Prairie's building but promises have been made not to tear down the structure that dates back to the early 1900's.
