TITHING OFFICE

Tithing Office when it was two stories tall.

Did you know the old Tithing Office is still around? In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, members brought their eggs, hay, apples, and other goods as their tithing payment since cash was so hard to come by. The Tithing Office was located on the main street on the corner across from the old high school (now the County Annex). It was originally two stories high. The building today is only one story and is currently owned by Lawyer’s Title.

Notice the door in the back outside leading to the basement. Most of the tithing food items were kept in the coolness of the cellar underneath the building.
