Past Pics: Steeple falls, Trinity demolished

Posted Monday, April 13, 2009, at 9:37 AM

It was 30 years ago this week that the 100-year-old Trinity Lutheran Church structure was demolished on the same site as the present church, at Frederick and Themis streets in Cape Girardeau.

The demolition on April 18, 1979 came more than a year after the Jan. 16, 1978 announcement that Trinity had been declared unsafe for services.

The present church building was dedicated on May 2, 1982.
