Among the Churches

Wilmington is soon to be further adorned and advanced in the building line by a large and handsome new church, which is to be erected by First Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city. Plans for the edifice have already been drawn, the contract in this particular having been given out to Messrs. Hunt & Hunt, of New York City, and a member of that firm will shortly arrive in Wilmington to make ready for the building. The site is to be about Tenth and Market Streets, but whether the church will be erected directly on the corner or not has not yet been determined upon.

At present the church occupies handsome quarters in the Odd Fellows' Building, but these quarters were only obtained temporarily, as it has long been the desire of the members of the church to possess an edifice of their own. Now the long-expected time has arrived. The building will be a handsome one and will very likely be of stone. It will be finely appointed and substantially constructed. The work of erecting it will be done under the personal supervision of a representative of the architects, and the tearing down of the buildings now on the site will begin shortly.
