Inscription.  Daniel McCormack donated land for church, graveyard and school, 1819, to replace log church built by Baptists, circa 1785. Structure was used by several denominations. In 1830 most of original members became affiliated with the Disciples of Christ, founded by Alexander Campbell. Has served continuously as Christian Church since then. Presented by Friends of McCormack Christian Church.
