Clinton Heights Lutheran Church

During the 1900s, the history of Clintonville churches is always a story of growth and overcrowding. Here are some pictures of the Clinton Heights Lutheran Church. The original church, a white frame mission chapel shown in my book, was build around 1922.

Their Sunday School grew quickly, and by the late 1940s classes were held in adjacent houses and in the church kitchen (shown). Members voted to start a sister congregation on Morse Road (North Community Lutheran Church) to serve the burgeoning population in that area. A new church on Clinton Heights was dedicated in 1951 to serve the legacy members’ needs.

In 1971, the double house located to the south of the church was razed and the parking lot developed. In the 1990s an additional house to the east to supplement their parking. (Photos courtesy of Clinton Heights Lutheran Church)
