Historical Sketch

In 1875, the Auglaize Conference (Ohio) of the United Brethren Church sent R.W. Wilgus to establish the Fort Wayne Mission Station. Later this became the First United Brethren Church, and in 1894 the name changed to Calvary United Brethren Church. In August of 1951, the church became Calvary Evangelical United Brethren Church. In 1968 it became Calvary United Methodist Church. The first building was erected in 1886, and the parsonage was built in 1906. A new building was built in 1927 and was occupied in January 1928, and a new parsonage was built in 1941.
