Church of Lombard (United Church of Christ)
Corner of Main and Maple Streets
You can see it for miles around! This famous Lombard landmark was built in 1870, probably by Joseph Gregory. The church has a tall pointed steeple and high arched windows. It is supposed to look like the old churches in Europe. First Church is a very important building to the people of Lombard. The church bell was Lombard's fire alarm until 1910.
first library in Lombard was in the church basement. Josiah Reade
brought books from his personal collection to a room where people would
come to borrow them.
