LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A church in downtown La Crosse is celebrating a milestone.
Sunday, the Wesley United Methodist Church building celebrated 130 years of use.
Church leaders say the building has come a long way since starting with no indoor plumbing.
Church parishioners as well as the pastor dressed up in clothes worn during the time of the building's inauguration.
The church's pastor says it's an honor to be a part of historic downtown La Crosse.
"It's an old building but we're a growing vibrant congregation and I think there's still a place for churches to bring to a lot to a community. And we're excited to be a part of downtown La Crosse," said Anna-Lisa Hunter, pastor at the Wesley United Methodist Church.
The church was also a part of yesterday's Historic Downtown Day.
