First Presbyterian Church was organized in 1839 by Scottish-Irish settlers. Built in 1845, the sanctuary is the original church structure. According to local tradition, the church bell, cast in 1851 by the Andrew Meneely and Sons Foundry of West Troy, New York, was used to alert the citizens of Louisville to the approach of Col. Benjamin Grierson's Union calvary raid on April 22, 1863. In 1973, First Presbyterian Church became a charter member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
