The original church was completed and dedicated on June 16, 1904 as the Westerdale Methodist Church. It became Westerdale United during the Union of Churches in 1925. Ministers from surrounding communities served Westerdale, services were irregular in the 50's. In the 60's Westerdale became part of the Ennerdale Mission field and was served by theological students. Services resumed in 1971. This pioneer church became a bit of an attraction, however 1979 saw the organ and guest book stolen and lead to the doors no longer being always open. A new organ was donated and music continued to accompany the services. I am not sure when services ceased but by 2009 the building was in disrepair and could not be saved. It was torn down. Citizens built this replica to stand in place of their beloved church.
Also if I ever get married, I know a cute little venue.
