Here is the website for Broad Street United Methodist Church. The address is 501 East Broad Street Columbus, Ohio 43215-3822
Fairyland was located on the site of the Parkview Hotel / Retirement Community. I haven't seen any pictures, but it was said to have a roller coaster, a midway, a clubhouse, an arcade, concessions, an ice skating rink, and I'm sure many other things. It had a 2,000 seat theater for "Summer dramatics" in opposition to East End's "Summer vaudeville." The park opened in 1907, but I think the ice skating rink opened before then. The park was destroyed by a fire on May 9, 1908.
