Our children had a week of great programs andactivities during spring break. They started the week studying art with Ruth Rosentrater. Ruth is talented andhas patience so that the children had a great time. Theyenjoyed Louise Grider and her Owls of Alabama, and then
moved on to McWane Center‟s Planetarium with the
constellations. Finally they enjoyed a program with livefarm animals, Two-By-Two Petting Zoo. It was great funand was made possible by a generous donation fromWiregrass United Way. The Library continues to reachout to our young people and offer a safe environment for our youth.In celebration of National Library Week, April 14

Spring Hill Methodist Church
 by Jocelyn Rayford
This church was added to the
 Alabama Register of Land-marks
and Heritage
on August 13, 1987. Organized in Octo- ber 1876 as a Methodist Episcopal Church, South, after theclosing of the Mt. Zion Methodist Episcopal Church, South, itremained active until the appointment of the church was dis-continued by the Alabama-West Florida Conference in 1978.This church can be found on the 1907 map by Judge Deese inthe Klondyke community, southeast of Ozark.
It was named the “Methodist Episcopal Church, South” as
a result of slavery. According to the book 
Claybank Memo-ries
, written by Judge Val McGee, “The first breakup of a
national institution because of slavery, was, surprisingly
enough, the Methodist Episcopal Church…The southern
Methodist churches promptly met in conference and organ-ized a separate Methodist conference, calling it the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South.”
 Dr. Frank Arnold, Jr., a minister who retired to reside inthe Klondyke Community of Dale County, wrote in the
 Heri-tage of Dale County, Alabama
, “This church, often referred toas „Spring Hill‟, was served by 46 ministers during its 102
year history. Their average tenure was around two years.”
The following includes some of their names: Jesse T. Lee,Frank M. Jenkins, Thomas O. Mullins, Angus C. Lee, andLewis T. Reynolds. Families who appear on the original roll
of church membership were: “Mullins, Lee, Reynolds, Pea-
cock, Whaley, Jenkins, Harper, Miller, Everett, Andrews,Woodham, Cox, Hill, Cannon, Arnold, Mitchell, Williams,
Tomlin, Woodall, Register and others.”
 According to Dr. Frank A. Arnold, the physical structure
of this church “is representative of a type and style of church
construction to be found circa 1850-
1910 in rural Alabama.”
In the
 Heritage of Dale County
he further states
“The distinc-
tive thing about this structure is that it is one of the few sur-viving with nearly original integrity. It was constructed of 
native pine …The hand
-hewn center sill is 40 feet long, span-
ning the entire length of the structure…Pews are handmade of 
 planed heart pine boards. Inscriptions of names of personsspanning the history of the church are scratched and carved
into the pews.” Because the church building is now private
 property, permission must be obtained prior to visiting thesite. This church is located 6 miles south of Ozark along
Highway 123 South. Dr. Arnold‟s driving instructions are:“From Highway 123 South, turn right across the street fromthe Klondyke Gospel Music Center, down a dirt road.” Dr.
Frank A. Arnold passed away in Ozark, June 2002.
