Old Stone Presbyterian Church

Erected 1788 
American Presbyterian and Reformed Historical Site.

Excerpt from Plaque:
"This building used by Presbyterians until 1834;
by the Baptists, 1834-1858;
by Old School Baptist Church of Color, 1858-1886;
by Federal troops as a stable during War between the States when it was damaged by shell fire;
by Public School for Negro Children, 1875-1929;
by National Guard as armory, 1929-1940.
Restored, 1941-1950"

Next to the church is a statue of Revolutionary War hero Daniel Morgan (left), who was a member of the church.

    1. No. I assume they open it for special occasions but I have not seen it listed for any so far.

  2. ...this lovely building sure has had many lives!
