The History of Two Historic Neighborhood Churches: Linden Hills Congregational United Church of Christ and Edina Morningside Community Church
December 2 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
This program tells the story of two churches–their history, their architecture, and their
neighborhoods. Linden Hills Congregational Church grew out of the Union Sunday School, which
began meeting in 1896. By 1903, charter members had built a frame church building at 42nd and Upton designed by George H. Keith. The Linden Hills congregation later provided help to the founding members of the Morningside church as they sought meeting space. This began an
enduring relationship between the two congregations each of which helped shape neighborhood life. The Edina Morningside Community Church building was designed by Harry Wild Jones.
