Ebenezer Methodist Church

Visit Jan 2010

From my notes of 1969:

The nearest Bay to ‘The Lodgings’ is Crocus Bay. To get there one walked or got a lift up Crocus Hill. A church (of which there were many) half way up the hill.

(Note the ‘International Road sign indicating Children crossing). The light coloured band across the road is a drainage ditch, which will destroy any vehicle if you hit them often enough. For this reason they were all marked with large white letters ‘DITCH’ on the road (You can see it faintly in the picture level with the traffic sign).

The house in the far distance with the Red roof is in both pictures even though taken 40 years apart

The road on the right to ‘Northside’ was not there in 1969. There was another ‘house’ sited where the road is, similar to the one on the corner where the telegraph pole is, which is currently unoccupied and boarded up ( known by the Met APU as the ‘lodgings’).

Nori's Reply Hello Ian, I love reading historical contributions, but I have a feeling that you may have uploaded the wrong photo?

I may want to visit for Sunday worship this summer. Does it still have Sunday service? If so what time, how long does it last

The Ebenezer Methodist Church
by: Anonymous

On Coronation Avenue, is the oldest church on the island, built in 1830. This year in July they will celebrate their 180th year anniversary.
The building on the corner of Northside Road and Coronation Avenue that the gentleman referred to was the old Anguillan, a general store that sold provisions, groceries, cloth, shoes, etc. The second floor had guest rooms for rent. My husband Walter Richardson grew up on Roaches Hill and knows many stories about the area, and I have always loved the building. It has been vacant for many years. I am hoping some day it will be restored and not torn down.Does anyone know what the initials stand for in the iron gate?
