Betty Jane Wilson holds up a brick she intends to purchase as a fundraiser for the Historical Shrine Church project in Valley Falls. Wilson is president of the Valley Falls Historical Society that plans to move the historic church from its location at Elm Street and K-16 Highway to an empty lot in the 300 block of Broadway. People can purchase the bricks for $50 to “put your star on Broadway,” which will be used to lay a courtyard in front of the church. The small building served as the first Lutheran Church west of the Missouri River.
