Founded 1835

During 1861-62 the church was used as a hospital by Union troops of 39th Illinois Regiment Volunteers, 5th Connecticut Regiment Volunteers, 46th Pennsylvania Regiment Volunteers, and 28th New York Regiment Volunteers, under Colonel Williams. Their batteries were placed around and behind the church to repel Stonewall Jackson's batteries, on the opposite hill in West Virginia.
