In 1805 Transylvania Presbytery, Kentucky on petition of pioneer settlers in Knox County sent Rev. Thomas Cleland, who thus became the first Presbyterian minister to preach in Vincennes. The service was held at the Council House in the Indian Village near this spot. In 1806, "The Indiana Church" was organized by Rev. Samuel B. Robinson, in Col. Small's barn, two miles northeast of the borough.
