St. John's United Methodist Church bought the building, renaming it the Stith Mead House, and has dedicated it as a place for the less fortunate to receive food, medical attention and clothing. Church members donated $240,000 to the project. Stith Mead founded St. John's in 1798. Dozens attended the open house Wednesday.   Corey Perrine/Staff
