The Midway Church was demolished – 1996
My father was chaplain when that church was built. It was very special to our family. I was told that the church was demolished to make more room for the birds! I never told my father it had been demolished. 😔
The Church was demolish due to it being infested with termites – at least that what I was told by reliable sources. MPC opened a large room in the NAF Hangar and converted it into a church. We held Christmas and many other services there. That room in the NAF Hangar has also been abandoned. I find it interesting that when all the churches closed, the island took a nose-dive for the worse times ever.
I wrote the comment above. Still would like to know how termites got on Midway Island. Also how did mosquitoes get on the island. They fogged for them often. ( firstname.lastname@example.org)
