Inscription. In 1824, Presbyterians worshipped together for the first time in Montgomery County in an unfinished log cabin. Expressing their religious mission through education, Presbyterians founded Wabash College in 1832 and the county's first free preschool program in 1969. The present sanctuary was constructed in 1881, and the education wing was added in 1961. In 2001, this church sponsored the Nation's first rural gun exchange.
