Inscription.  New Hope Presbyterian Church was organized in 1838 when six members began meeting in a school house near Troy, later renamed Danville. Rev. James B. Stafford served as the first pastor or the church from 1838 to 1854. The first sanctuary was a log cabin-style structure with a stack chimney and fireplace. The second sanctuary, a frame building located near the cemetery, would remain in use until 1912 when a new building was constructed. The cemetery was established in 1839.
