This church was constituted May 21, 1893, with ten charter members. The original one-room frame building, dedicated 1894 and located on land given by James C. Fort, was across Main Street about 600 feet east of here. The congregation of about 150 with W. C. Wallace as pastor, moved here June 6,1926, upon completing this house of worship.
