History of the
Galbraith Methodist Church

The Galbraith Methodist church was organized in rural Newell one mile east of Newell on the SE corner of Sec. 16, Newell Twp., in 1889 and for many years enjoyed a large and active membership.  However, with the closing of the country schools, many of the younger members started attending church in Newell with their town friends, and with a dwindling membership, the church was discontinued in 1953.
