The text from this 1931 “A Spot in Cincinnati” reads: The Church of the New Jerusalem at the corner of Oak Street and Winslow Avenue in Walnut Hills will be the center of great activity this week as the 120th annual convention of the New Church convenes in Cincinnati. The local Swedenborg Society was founded in 1811 in the home of its first pastor, Mr. Adam Hurdus. In 1903, the Walnut Hills Church was dedicated and the congregation moved from its former location…Fourth and John Streets.
