1919 Sanborn Insurance Map of South Park M.E. Church on Smelter Hill

1919 Sanborn Map of Collinsville South Park Methodist
During the time Collinsville had an expanded population (up to ~8000 people) when the zinc smelters were active (~1911-1918) a large portion of Collinsville's people lived on Smelter Hill where this "other" Collinsville Methodist Church was located. More research is required to determine when the church started and ended.
