Look what the Millers did

The sign.

Carolynn Miller, whose name you frequently find linked with Mulberry Center Church, the pioneer structure that is at home these days at Wilson Brewer Park in Webster City, undertook a related mission this winter.

It was on Miller family land that the church was built in Blairsburg Township, north from old Highway 20, along the Stonega road. This winter, Carolynn Miller hired Mike Wiemann, of Deadend Graphix, to design a sign commemorating the church’s location.

The sign is 10 miles northeast of Webster City on R38 or what today is called the Stonega blacktop.

It reads: “Former Site of the Mulberry Center Church.”

Mike and Bob Wiemann placed the sign in the fence line along Colleen Aldridge’s farm property. Colleen Aldridge was a Miller before her marriage. So the sign is installed on what can still be called Miller land.

“We couldn’t allow the sign to be too large, because there isn’t any protection from the wind,” Carolynn Miller said.

“Colleen Aldridge and yours truly donated money, in order to complete this project. Also, Colleen approved the sign to be placed on her farm property.”
