Pioneer preacher cracked the whip
Madera County (California) Historical Society
Borden’s Cumberland Presbyterian Church, shown here circa 1900, stood right beside Rev. W.B. McElwee in his protestations against Madera’s Grand Fiesta of 1901. It issued a denunciation of its own.
Although the article forgets the church and pastor were Cumberland Presbyterian, the article is interesting none-the-less.
