Photograph caption dated January 23, 1965 reads, "In 62 years this building, the Chatsworth Community Church, hasn't moved more than an inch or two in any direction but down as its slowly settled more firmly into the ground. But next week the stately building becomes an historical monument and will be carted off bag, baggage and original dust to repose somewhere on city property as a relic of bygone years."; See images #00113190 through #00113191 for all photos in this series.
