Inscription.  
This building was constructed in two parts with the front portion being erected about 1832 from timbers taken from the earlier Monmouth Furnace buildings. The rear section containing the altar, steeple, and bell tower, was added in 1836.

A most unusual feature of the Church is the location of the bell tower at the rear. The front section could not support the weight, thus, necessity forced the placement.

Church met on Sundays, but during the week the pulpit was closed off by sliding doors and the Village School was in session. Usually the minister also served as the School Master at an annual salary of $500.00 for the double job.
