This church, founded as Nazareth on the Beaverdam Presbyterian Church, was established in 1803. It met in members' homes until they paid $1.50 for a half-acre tract and built a small frame church 2.5 mi. E. The founders' cemetery there includes graves of early church families. The congregation moved here in 1877.

The church was renamed Townville Presbyterian Church in 1885. This sanctuary was called "a handsome wooden edifice" at its dedication in 1877. In 1954 it was covered in brick veneer, with a new narthex and rear addition. Townville Academy, which stood behind the church, became a public school in 1902.
