1885 – On May 2, H.H. Sheets, D.F. Sheets and Jane Barber traveled to De Smet, where they signed the Articles of Incorporation for the Esmond Methodist Church. That summer the Ladies Aid put on a Strawberry Ice Cream Festival as a benefit for the church. The train depot and warehouse were used for the waiting rooms and serving. Arrangements had been made for a train couch to be left on the side track, and that evening the freight train from the south would be detained until seven o’clock. At that time the coach would be attached to give the people from the north a ride home. During August, the foundation for the Methodist Episcopal Church was being laid.
