Inscription. Organized in 1896 with Rev. Henry Williams as pastor. This congregation built its first sanctuary on a nearby lot donated by W. I. Porter. That small wooden structure was dedicated August 12, 1896.
The congrgation grew and the present brick church was constructed in 1919. It was dedicated January 1, 1920, by Pastor Rev. C.J Smith, with the Rev. Dr. L Waiters Pastor.
