Inscription.  Built of native timber and stone, the church is the oldest religious structure on Main Street. The original 24 pews, each 11 feet long, are still in use. The exact dimensions of the structure were selected to achieve optimal interior acoustics. Stained glass windows were added in 1963 and 1991.
