St. John’s hits 100-year mark
One hundred years ago, World War II was coming to a close. In the years that followed, history witnessed the Great Depression, the attack on Pearl Harbor, World War II, the Korean and Vietnam wars, Pres. John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the Gulf War, the events of 9/11 and so much more.
The years have had ups and downs, but for members of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cornell, one thing has remained a constant over the century.
Beginning Jan. 23, 1918, St. John’s had eight families, with the Rev. Immanuel Albrecht serving as their pastor. For the next 39 years, members worshipped on the corner of Seven and Bridge streets in a small, white-frame church.
