The Immanuel Episcopal Church on the Green in New Castle (DE) is located at Strand and Harmony Streets.

Immanuel is located in the heart of Old New Castle, a village of well preserved colonial and federal homes and public buildings. A stroll through New Castle reveals the original capital of Delaware, the site where William Penn landed in America, as well as beautiful 17th, 18th and 19th century buildings – all within a 7-block walk of the Delaware River.

As the colonial capital, New Castle grew in size and stature. Larger houses were constructed, and businesses sprang up to accommodate the judges, lawyers, and other professionals who had business in the capital.

As the Revolution drew near, political debates and protests in the colony were centered in New Castle. Several signers of the Declaration of Independence lived in New Castle – one of them, George Read, is buried in the Immanuel cemetery.

Founded in 1689, the Immanuel Episcopal Church on the Green in New Castle (DE) is one of the oldest Episcopal parishes in the U.S. Immanuel’s parishioners have been worshiping on the spot where the church stands for over 300 years.

Immanuel Church was the first parish of the Church of England in Delaware (then still part of Pennsylvania). Work on a church building began in 1703, and was mostly completed by 1708.

The church is located at Strand and Harmony Streets in the heart of Old New Castle, a village of well preserved colonial and federal homes and public buildings.

Worlds in Collision- Immanuel Velikovsky.

Immanuel Velikovsky a Brilliant Scientist who research the creation and was finally to be found correct with his discoveries. These were all documented in the Mabinogi a Welsh book that escaped the Roman Churches desire to hide all Ancient British History. By calling it the Mabinogian it was classed as childrens fairy tales or bedtime stories which the Church was not interested in. Mabinogi meants creation and refers to the creation of the Universe. This was against the dogma of the churches how the world was created and on the seventh day god rested. Which is bullshite and unbelievable but in ancient times anyone speaking out against the church was swiftly dealt with and silenced. The Church attempted to destroy all British History including all the Ancient Kings, However in order to do so they must destroy all the evidence too which they were unable to do so. Velikovsky was discredited by academics who were only interested in their own agenda’s and reputations. However people started to sit up and realise his research was correct. Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett realised this years ago too and have long been the victims of Religious zealots and academics who are only interested in protecting their own names and reputation and will say anything in order to discredit anyone who attempts to tell the truth. Because if you do you declare war on the World.

Church names

Dedicated in 1903 as the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, the name was changed three years later to Immanuel Presbyterian Church following the merger of the Cumberland and Immanuel churches. This was the childhood church of actors Dick and Jerry Van Dyke, who grew up in Danville.

In 1961, the congregation decided to build a new church in a growing Danville subdivision, and the next year the building was sold to the Red Mask Players, a local theatrical group whose troupe once included the Van Dyke brothers (both actors even raise funds for the Players to purchase the property). The Red Mask Players converted the church into a 225 seat theater, and renamed it the Kathryn Randolph Theater after one of their founding members. Productions of the Red Mask Players continue there today.

The City of Danville is the seat of Vermilion County, and is located in East Central Illinois near the Indiana border. The population of Danville was 33,027 as of the 2010 census.

More photographs of Danville can be found in my "Danville IL" set.

You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds (and past State Fairs), and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:
