Inscription.  This congregation, one of the oldest in Southwest Virginia, consisted of 45 families by 1769. Col.Joseph Cloyd, a Revolution army War officer, donated land for its first sanctuary, built 1/2 mile east of here ca. 1781. The present sanctuary (ca. 1875), the third on the site, blends Greek Revival and Gothic Revival architecture. Members in the mid 19th century included enslaved African Americans. The church housed a Confederate military hospital during the Civil War, and the home guard mustered nearby before the Battle of Cloyd's Mountain on 9 May 1864.The cemetery reflects Victorian funerary art and is the burial place of veterans of the Civil War and World Wars I and II.
