Woodward School

Van Wert, Iowa
"A Century of Memories" of Van Wert, Iowa
1880 - 1980, p. 47

Another school which doubled as a place of worship in possibly as early as the years 1910 through 1919, was the Woodward School. H.O. Tuttle served as minister for several summers with Rev. E.C. Vanderpool and others also holding meetings.

Mrs. Fred (Lenna) Beers led in organizing the Sunday School and church here. For some time services were discontinued until 1950, when "Winifred and Mildred Macumbet of the Christian Union Faith, from Indianola, reorganized Sunday School and church here, taking quite an active part in the community and will be remembered by many."
