Amboy United Brethren Church

 

     

This church, the old post office, and the schoolhouse previously comprised the center of the town of Amboy. The church served many community purposes including social gatherings and school plays. 

The building is an example of early 20th century Gothic Revival vernacular architecture; noted by its peaked, not arched, windows. The building is supported on 12 inch diameter half-round timbers. The distinctive steeple is clad in cedar shakes or shingles. 

The building is currently hosting the North Clark Historical Museum. This museum won the State Stewardship Award in 2001 as an example of a largely volunteer effort which, has preserved and protected a very significant part of the local history. Exhibits are currently under development that will help to tell the story of life in early, rural Clark County.
