St. Paul's United Methodist Church Cemetery

Location:

Route 104, South of the village of Penns Creek, Centre Township  

History:

"The Evangelical Church at Penns Creek was established probably about the year 1800 largely on account of the Evangelical activities in New Berlin. Reverend Jacob Albright (1759-1808), the founder of the Evangelical Church, visited this community and preached in the home of John Walter. It appears, however, that no organized church at Penns Creek was founded until about 1850. In 1870 the first church was erected. It was rebuilt in 1897."  Dunkelberger, p. 635
