Inscription.
The Presbyterian Meeting House was built
around 1820 on land owned by Alexander Boyd the
Younger of Boydton, Virginia. In 1824 the church
property was deeded to the church elders for
the sum of one dollar. In times of need, the
Presbyterians have shared their house of worship
with the Methodists, Baptists, and Episcopalians.
