Inscription. Organized in 1806, Plains Presbyterian Church was the first church to form in Cranberry Township. The first services were held in groves and a tent. A log church was built in 1820 replaced by a brick church in 1839 with the present frame structure built in 1878. Plains Church is recognized as a "mother" church to Evans City and Crestview Presbyterian Churches. Membership was released in 1883 and 1890, respectively, to form these area churches. The Plains congregation has been and continues to be a faithful witness to the gospel in the community.
