St. Mary's Historical Church still has vital role in the Woodburn community
WOODBURN — As far back as historical records show, and as far back as anyone can remember, Woodburn has had the oldest church in Clarke County.
LaVera Cottrell of Woodburn was a member of the church and remembers attending services as a child.
"We had a woodburning stove, and someone came and built the fire the night before mass. We had mass on Sunday, but for my parents, before that, when they first built it, they just had a priest come from Chariton on the railroad, come up on the train, and had it about once a month."
