Inscription.  In 1833 eleven people established the First Congregational Church of Grand Blanc. The congregation, which held its early services in homes and, later, schoolhouses built their first house of worship in 1855. They replaced it with this modest red brick structure in 1885. The building served the Congregationalists for eighty-three years; its last worship service was on October 6, 1968. Purchased by the city of Grand Blanc in 1967, it became the home of municipal offices and a museum.
