The Frederick Porter Griffin Center for Local History and Genealogy

About this collection

This collection features selections from the Frederick Porter Griffin Center's Harrison County Churches photograph collection. Photographs are of a variety of churches that have been built in Harrison Coutny over the years. Construction dates of these buildings range from 1813 to 1974. Several of these churches continue to serve their congregations, while others have been repurposed for other uses. Some buildings are no longer extant. Most of these were razed either when congregations disbanded, or to make way for new, larger, or more modern facilities. A few were destroyed by fire.

While not all churches, denominations, or localities are represented in this collection, it reflects the current holdings of the Frederick Porter Griffin Center. Anyone who wishes to donate similar images to expand the collection may contact the Griffin Center at genealogy@hcpl.lib.in.us. For those who are interested in researching a particular church or denomination, the Griffin Center has numerous resources on several of the county's past and present churches.
