Ample parking at the church a hundred or so feet from the marker, but the church is the place to see. If you can get photos of the inside that would be great!

Congregation Was organized in 1849. The church, constructed of lumber produced on a water-powered sawmill and furnished with seats of chestnut, hand finished, is in an excellent state of preservation. It was first used as a combined church, school and community building. During the Civil War both Union and Confederate troops held services here, the time depending on who temporarily controlled the valley.
