Inscription.  Organized in 1871, this church was chartered by the Rev. R. E. Sherrill with former members of the Presbyterian church in Webster (3 mi. SW). The first building for this church was a white frame structure built near the city cemetery on land given by early Winnsboro philanthropist Nancy Cook. In 1907 the congregation acquired this site, and a frame schoolhouse was moved here for use as a sanctuary. By 1953 a manse and fellowship hall had been built. Throughout its history, the church has played a vital role in the community life of Winnsboro.
 
Erected 1983 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 8959.)
