That was kinda fun researching this. Found this; The year 1910 of the new 20th century saw major changes and additions to the Hartland Methodist Church. The front entrance was relocated to the present location with a new vestibule and bell tower, stained glass windows were installed, a choir loft was added and Christian education school rooms were added to the back of the building. Unfortunately this project also resulted in the death of a local carpenter, Will Shoemaker, as a result of his fall from the new bell tower. Subsequently the stained glass window in the north wall was commemorated in his memory, and on November 12, 1910 a dedication service took place to celebrate the reopening of the remodeled church building.
