Donegal Presbyterian Church

On this sacred spot for 260 years stood the majestic white oak tree known as the Witness Tree. Despite preservation efforts, the tree succumbed to old age and was solemnly removed on June 3, 1991. Its memory symbolizes the patriotism and love of freedom which characterized the early Scots-Irish Presbyterians.
