Inscription.

The first Presbyterian Church in Grayville was organized in 1850 under the leadership of Mrs. Thomasann Gray. In 1868 the members built a small wooden Church on this corner of the cemetery, a gift from a member of the Gray Family.

It was replaced by a large brick structure in 1915. The congregation disbanded in 2005 and the land was returned to the Gray Family.
