Elton Avenue/La Resurreccion Church

In 1852, German-speaking residents of Melrose organized a Methodist church.  By 1879 the congregation erected a brick building on Elton Avenue, a street named for a developer of the area.  In the 1990’s the church was ‘wrecked’ according to a contemporary newspaper article about it.  Eddie Perez Jr. moved his church, La Resurreccion United Methodist Church to the building in 1994 and arranged for funding to have the building properly restored.
