We bet you didn’t know that Shiloh United Methodist Church is the oldest Methodist Church in the state of Illinois, founded in 1807. Bet you also didn’t know Shiloh UMC is the Mother Church of First United Methodist Church of O’Fallon, founded in 1864.

One of the grandest homes in the Shiloh area was built in 1863 and later converted into an orphanage. It is now a Catholic pastoral center. Do you know where we are talking about? Watch this month’s “A Look Back” video and find out!
