Inscription.  In 1827 Joannah Smith bequeathed $600 so her Church could have a pastor. The unparalleled generosity of dedicated Presbyterians Joannah and husband James Smith, enabled Joppa Presbyterian Church, then located at this site, to call the Rev. William A. Hall as pastor. Without these gifts, Joppa Church might have closed. The growing community and Rev. Hall's energetic leadership from 1827-1851 resulted in much growth and progress for the church.
