c. 1880

In 1886, Mr. & Mrs. R.T. Nesbitt sold Union Chapel tothe church's trustees. The deed specified it was to beused by all Christian denominations and by schools andagricultural societies. As this was a rural community,various clergymen preached here on a rotating schedule. The stone building, which featured double-hung Gothic arch-styled windows, was sustained by donations and fundraisers and was still in use in the 1910s. The chapel eventually fell into a state of ruins with three of four walls and roof that had collapsed. Chapels such as this were important social as well as religious gathering places for local residents before radio, television and broad newspaper coverage of events.
