Dr. Meneilly Fights Segregration

In the late 1940’s young Reverend Robert Meneilly was charged with starting a new Presbyterian church and assigned the area of Prairie Village. Real estate agreements, however, disallowed church services unless there was a church building in which to hold services. As an experiment, small Presbyterian churches donated $100,000 to start the church. Read more about Meneilly and his new church at JoCoHistory »
