The Evangelical Association was an American religious denomination formally organized by the followers of Jacob Albright in 1803.
The paving stones set in the ground mark the outlines of the first church building and the first printing house of the Evangelical Association. For over 50 years New Berlin PA served as its unofficial denominational headquarters. In 1854, as people moved westward and the Evangelical Association gained national stature, the denominational offices and operations moved to Cleveland OH.
In 1894, a split in the Evangelical Association created the United Evangelical Church. In 1922, the Evangelical Association and the United Evangelical Church re-united to form the Evangelical Church. In 1946 the Evangelical and the United Brethren in Christ denominations came together to form the Evangelical United Brethren (EUB) Church. In 1968 the EUB and Methodist denominations joined to form the United Methodist Church. This site is a Heritage Landmark of the United Methodist Church and supervised by the denomination's General Commission on Archives and History
