Crowd in front of the Wyacca Church

Crowd in front of the Wyacca Church

A crowd of people in front of the Wyacca Church, Quorn district for the opening of the church. The man in the white coat is Charles Frederick Pearce, who was a very community minded man who travelled the district in a horse and sulky to fundraise in order to build this church. His farm was located directly opposite the church, which was also used as the Yarrah School. It was also used as a meeting place for the Wyacca & Arden Vale Agricultural Bureau, which he was President or Secretary from the late 1890's. They held regular meetings to support the local farmers overcome issues and deal with hardship of the drought at that time. The land the church was built on was donated by Mr. Hanneman, a friend of Charles Pearce, who was also in the Agricultural Bureau. The church was made of reclaimed materials from another old building nearby that housed the school. One fo the builders, Mr. Schumann, also built the Arden Vale church nearby and of similar design [information provided by a researcher].
