Champaign Historic SiteThe First Congregational Church, built in 1855-56, was popularly known as the "Goose Pond" Church, because the site was once a water-filled area, home to flocks of wild geese and ducks. The church became a meeting center for numerous groups aspiring to improve life in the booming "New Town" then rising up along the tracks of the recently completed Illinois Central Railroad.
