Additional Description: Bottom image: Looking south on State Street ca. 1916. The Presbyterian Sackett and McMillan Halls (right foreground, next to the 1867 Methodist Church) provided university students with Bible study, prayer meetings, missionary work, social activities, and residences for fifty years. The new First Methodist Church replaced all three buildings in 1940.
Top left inset: In this 1870 view west on Huron Street, steeples had yet to be added to the First Presbyterian Church at Division Street. In 1936 the church was demolished to make way for the Ann Arbor News building.
Bottom left inset: The 1876 First Congregational Church across from campus at State and William, seen here in 1921, attracted faculty and students.
