At Sand Creek church building

Not far from Allenville IL, where we’ve spent time with the joyful Miller family, is the 1874 Sand Creek church building where an unsuccessful effort was begun, led by Daniel Sommers, to introduce the instrument in the church. It went to the state supreme court. The church was established in the 1830s, and the brick building that stands today was the third one built.
