National Register of Historic Places Registration Form. “The original Early Republic building was constructed in 1833 on a 1.156 acre tract of land given for the purpose of building a Union Church by John Early for whom Earlysville got its name. The church is a one story frame building on a low stone foundation with an entrance by two doors on the south gable end. Four 2/2 sash windows mark each side of the building. The building was originally one room; a small vestibule with flanking rooms for Sunday School rooms was partitioned off around 1880. Brackets on the interior walls are for oil lamps. The building has no plumbing and no electricity and was heated by one stove in the main room. Simple architrave trim and chair rail are original, as are the flush wide board siding which finish off the interior walls (Submitted on August 15, 2009.)
