Inscription.
Worship services in this hamlet were held as early as 1740 in a log meeting house at the old burial ground northwest of historic Pye’s Corner.

The First Reformed Protestant Dutch Church was organized there in 1750. Initially services were in Dutch and later in English on alternate Sundays.

A sandstone building replaced the old structure in 1826 and was used until 1871 when the congregation moved to this site.
