This Presbyterian church was established 1736 by John Witherspoon and other early Scotch - Irish settlers. Originally located about 1 mile east at Williamsburg Cemetery, the congregation moved here to Academy Street in 1890; the present sanctuary was completed in 1913. A number of congregations have come from this church, which is the oldest continuing ecclesiastical group in Williamsburg County.

Erected by the congregation - 1993
