Title

1887 receipt for payment of 1884 & 1885 county taxes for lots 84 & 85 on Georgie Street

Description

The Evangelical Church parsonage was built on lots 84 and 85 of Georgie Avenue.

On pages 11 and 12 of the Madison Avenue United Methodist Church 1868-1968 history, "the trustees of the church bought two lots from the El Paso town company July 2, 1884. This land was located at 304 N. Georgie and apparently had a small barn on it. The purchase price was $42.50." The men of the church built a small house on the property to be used as the parsonage. Church services were held here until the church purchased the Derby schoolhouse in September 1886.
