The first building, known as the “Pine Creek Church,” was built near the “Tiadaghton Elm” and dedicated in 1798. When it was built, Jersey Shore did not yet exist. The building had no seats (people brought their own) and no heat but worshipers thronged to it. The former Indian Reserve Territory was sparsely settled – in 1800 there were only four houses on the present site of Jersey Shore. (Submitted on June 8, 2014, by PaulwC3 of Northern, Virginia.)
