BRANCH COUNTY

1833 QUINCY

The Presbyterian Church was organized Feb. 27, '57, with seven members, ¦ one only of whom, Mrs. Chapin, is now living. The house of worship was built in '69, a chapel added in '80, and carpeted and frescoed in '82. The present minister is Rev. J. Emory Fisher.
In '82 St. John's Mission Chapel was dedicated, Rev. H. J. Cook, rector of St. Mark's, Coldwater, ministering to them. In "67 the Church of Christ was organized with 14 members, and in '71 purchased the house in which they worship.
During the summer of '74, the Seventh Day Adventists organized their church with 15 members, and the same year erected a brick church. QUINCY AT PRESENT
I purposed to give the organization and present condition of the different trades and societies in Quincy, but space forbids. The village of Quincy to-day, in the neatness of its business rooms,. the width of its streets adorned with maple trees, the elegance of its homes, the thrift of its inhabitants, does not take a second place with any other village of its size anywhere. We have 11 frame and 20 brick business rooms; 2 furniture rooms, 2 harness -shops, a news depot, a book store. 2 boot and shoe stores, 2 clothing houses, 3 dry goods houses, 6 groceries, 3 hardware stores, 4 drug stores, 2 banks, 2 planing mills, a sash, door and blind factory, a foundry, a stock feed steamer factory, a head and stave factory, 2 flouring mills, 2 fruit drying establishments, 2 splendid hotels, 2 carriage shops, and we are justly proud of a factory which secures 5 first and 3 second premiums-and a diploma in competition with all other work of the kind in the country,
