Inscription.  Built in 1853 and expanded in 1913, this Gothic Revival building houses a congregation which originally worshipped at Cane Run. They moved to Harrodsburg and built on this site in 1818. Differences caused by the Civil War precipitated a split in the congregation. The Confederate faction continued to use this building until both factions reunited in 1913.
 
Erected by James Harrod Trust. (Marker Number 22.)
