First Brick Church

The first church, which was taken down in 1860 to give place to the present building [1901], was erected during Dr. McLean's pastorate in 1843.  The cost of the building was bout $3,000.  It was not a very inviting structure, was noted for its high porch with long stairways at either end.  Mr. A. P. Waugh was most active in its erection.  There were many things worthy of mention which transpired during this second pastorate but the records are lost and they cannot be reproduced.
