Inscription. After the Civil War, residents seeking Christian fellowship and education organized a Sunday School in the Hetzel House at the corner of Chapel and Pendleton streets. In 1869, nine members of the community organized Clifton Presbyterian Church, laying the cornerstone -- Christ being the first “cornerstone” -- on December 31, 1870 and completing the building on August 5, 1872.
