Please join us for a St. John's history tour through the streets of New Brighton. The FallFest Fun Run 5K and 1 Mile routes will take you by all three Church sites. We will start and finish near the current church building that was built 50 years ago in 1968. We will run by the school gym, which is the site of the 2nd church from 1956-1968, past Washburn-McReavy Funeral home, which was the original rectory built in 1903, and past the site of the original church built in 1907. The original church was used from 1907-1956. The church is no longer there but we will have pictures posted of what it looked like. In addition, the 5K route will take you to St. John the Baptist Cemetery, which was purchased in 1908.
