Inscription.  This church was organized on October 13, 1804 with forty-six members including fourteen African-Americans. Early families to worship here were Clayton, Davis, Fleming, Hill, Hyde, Jordon, McKnight, McFadden, and Pate. The site was donated by John D. Hill, the congregation’s first clerk. The brick church, which is the oldest meeting house in the county, was built in 1816. Elder Garner McConnico (1771-1833) served as the first minister. During the Civil War the building was used as a barracks by Union troops. The names of soldiers and their regiments were inscribed on pews and columns.
