About This Church
This church was built in 1837 by the Methodist Episcopal Society of Redding. The building committee consisted of Thomas B. Fanton, John Read Hill, Gershom Sherwood, Jesse Banks, and David Duncomb. It served the Methodist Society until 1921 and a Federation of Methodist and Congregational Societies until 1959. Then the remaining Methodists, with Christian generosity, gave the property to the First Church Of Christ Congregational.
 
Erected 1983 by Samuel E. Hill in memory of his ancestor John Read Hill.
