Inscription.  A number of Soldiers' Home veterans were members of this church over the years. It originally had a second floor for Sunday School classes and a cupola on the roof.

With the closing of the local lumber mill in 1910 the population of the town (and churches) dwindled over time. The church building was donated to the State and moved from Marbury to its present location in 1983. Unfortunately, by the time the abandoned building was donated, only the first floor could be saved.
 
Erected by Confederate Memorial Park.
