On May 6th, the property search committee discovered a vacant church in Ironton, WI. It was purchased for $30k in 2015 and the current asking price is $50k.

A showing is scheduled for May 8th and this page will be used to compile information to help the congregation think through options.

Water pipes burst last winter, have been replaced

Metal roof installed (___?)


Brighter lighting in auditorium

Powerwash/whitewash siding

Trim evergreens, general landscaping

Known basement issues (water seepage?)


Affordable (could pay cash, no mortgage)

Good visibility on HWY 58

Centrally located (w/ current membership)

A classic looking building

Move in ready?

Freedoms of ownership

Handicap accessible ramp

Parking for 15 cars (?)


It is an old building

Increased commute for members on East side

No land to expand

Smaller kitchen (?)


A. LONG TERM – Consider this the solution to our building needs and just call Ironton our permanent home.

B. SHORT TERM – Purchase and use it while we continue to look for a permanent place. This would allow for only minimal improvements.

C. EXPERIMENT – Purchase the building and just see how it works out for 5 years (or so).

D.  INVESTMENT – Allow a member to purchase the building and rent it back to the church at $400 per month.

Which of these approaches makes the most sense to you?
