Heart of Steamboat United Methodist Church of Steamboat Springs
Church History


In Our Beginning

According to the church history, the local
Methodist church was founded in 1895
when Rev. F.G. Boylan, a circuit rider,
arrived to form a small group.

The land where the church now stands was
purchased in 1896 for $350. The first church
building was constructed after groundbreaking
in 1901 by James H. Crawford. The first building
cost $4,000 and served Steamboat from
June 1902 to fall 1951.

Following a groundbreaking in May 1959,
the current sanctuary was built for
$60,000 from funds donated by church
members. The building was dedicated
March 20, 1960.
