The church was built in 1910 by Emanuel Jensen, a carpenter from View, Washington.  Pastor Dora Young walked from View to Amboy to start a Sunday School and decided the town needed a church.  She contacted Emanuel and the rest is history.  After being renovated to become the present day Museum, the United Brethren Church building was put on the Clark County Heritage Register in 1996, the  Washington Heritage Register of Historic Places on Oct. 17, 2008, and the National Register of Historic Places on Dec. 4, 2008.

Quilt Raffle tickets will be available for “Prairie Sampler,” a beautiful quilt made by the Chelatchie Quilters.  This is our annual fundraiser to benefit the Museum. A reprint of the mid-century UB Ladies Aide Cookbook will also be available to purchase.  The recipes are from local residents and include several poems written by Anna Rosencrans.
