HISTORICAL NOTE

This church was organized at a meeting in the Loy Schoolhouse on June 13, 1874, and the name "Hopewell" was chosen. Services were held in the schoolhouse, located a few miles north of Burr, Otoe County, Nebraska, until the first church building was erected in 1880. On March 23, 1913, a tornado completely destroyed the church and parsonage. New buildings were completed and dedicated on June 21, 1914.
