Coil, Jr. All money from the sale of the old church building and furniture was to be given to the Methodist Episcopal Church. There is also an agreement between the church board and the trustees of Broad Ripple for the town to accept responsibility for the transferred property, dated July 29, 1899.The towns of Broad Ripple and Wellington north of Indianapolis, merged in 1884 and continued on as Broad Ripple until the town was annexed to Indianapolis in 1922.
