1. First United Presbyterian Church Marker
Inscription. Rev. Hugh Wallis organized the First Presbyterian Church of Pembroke July 1, 1817. In 1829 Andrew Harroum gave a quarter acre of land for this church building which was completed in 1831 by a congregation of 78 members. The church bell was cast in 1855 at West Troy, N.Y. This original church structure is the second oldest building in the Village of Corfu, and the oldest building used by a continuous congregation in Town of Pembroke.
