According to tradition, the Upper Holston
congregation of the Presbyterian Church was
organized in 1776 on John Campbell's land at
Royal Oak and built a log structure there.
This was one of the first denominations to
organize in present-day Smyth County. Eventually it was named the Royal Oak Presbyterian
Church; a nearby cemetery plot still exists.
The congregation moved to a brick building
in Marion in 1853, and in 1885 a new structure
was constructed on the current site of the
church. In 1923, the 1885 structure was
torn down and a Late Gothic Revival style
church was built.
