 Creator:  Pilgrim Congregational Church 
 Dates:  1876-1961 
 Abstract:  Pilgrim Congregational Church was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1854 as University Heights Congregational Church in the Near West Side neighborhood of Tremont, then known as University Heights.To accommodate the growing congregation, the current church located at 2592 West 14th Street was built in 1893-1894 by architect S.R. Badgeley, whose unique design combined worship space with the growing need for a community center, including a library and the first kindergarten in the city of Cleveland. By 1919 the building had expanded to include a gymnasium complete with shower rooms, a boxing ring, and bowling alleys. Pilgrim Congregational Church was also the first building on the West Side of Cleveland to be fitted with electricity, operating its own power plant for several years. Pilgrim Congregational Church is now (2014) affiliated with the United Church of Christ. The collection consists of church bulletins, correspondence, financial documents, historical records, histories, invoices, ledgers, marriage licenses, meeting minutes, membership applications, pledge cards, receipts, Sunday school records, and withdrawal cards.
