Olive Mission

    Location:  Corner of Tennessee and Fourth streets.

    This is also a mission of the First Church, and was founded in 1869.  Its services are now held in a rented buildig; but its members expect (an expectation warranted by the growth of the enterprise) to build a suitable edifice at an early date for the use of the mission.

    The Sabbath-School, of which Jasper Finney is superintendent, numbers about one hundred and seventy-five members.

    Summary--Total membership of the Christian denomination in Indianapolis, about nine hundred; total Sabbath-School membership, one thousand.  Total value of church property, $53,000.
