This church was formed January 30, 1904, by the union of the First Church of
Janesville (Methodist) and the Court Street Methodist Episcopal Church. The meetings were held in the building of the former Court Street Church, and Rev. J. H. TIPPETT became pastor of the united societies. After worshipping about one year under this name, a new church was erected on the corner of South Franklin and Pleasant streets, west side, which was named the Cargill Memorial Church, in consideration of $10,000 donated by William CARGILL, of La Crosse, Wis. The buildings of the First Church and of Court Street Church were sold.
