The Congregational Church was organized in 1859 and in 1865 its members erected the brick building on the corner of Hamilton and Wood streets. The church disbanded after the sale of their building to the Baptists in 1904.

In the 1930's the steeple had to be removed due to deterioration.


From reading newspaper articles I think the Baptists abandoned this building and built a new church next door to Dairy Queen.
