c.1879 Church For Sale in Felton DE

OHU50K NOTES

Originally, this church, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was the Felton Methodist Protestant Church. In later years, it became a funeral home, then the Rescue House of Prayer Temple Deliverance.

Early Years

Organized on December 9, 1877, the Felton Methodist Protestant Church originally held services for several years in the Knights of Pythias Hall. In 1880, a parcel of land on High Street was deeded to the church trustees by Job Butterworth and his wife Elizabeth for the purpose of constructing a new church. The building was moved to this location in 1907.

Other Uses

It continued to function as a house of worship until 1931 when it was abandoned and offered to the Methodist Episcopal Conference. In the following years, the structure was renovated several times and served as both a community center and a funeral home.

Later Years

The Felton Church of God purchased the property in 1962 and conducted services here until it was sold to the Rescue House of Prayer, Temple of Deliverance in 1991. While the building is listed as part of the Felton Historic District in the National Historic Register, it continues to serve the spiritual needs of the community.

    Seems high for a church that from the pictures has no personality! Boring, unless I’m missing something and in that case maybe they should get a real photographer.

    I would like to know if the church is on the national historical registry and is still being used as a church, what are, if any duties do I have as the owner to keep it looking like a church? And to let services go on in my home.
