Inscription.  Sixteen persons from Presbyterian congregations in Tecumseh, Blissfield and Adrian founded this church in 1836. The following year the Reverend John Walker became their minister. They held services in a schoolhouse on the west side of the River Raisin. In 1842-43 the congregation erected its first church. In 1861 the present structure was completed. Much of the labor and materials were donated. Originally designed in the form of a New England meetinghouse, the building has been remodeled several times.
