January 18, 1863

The stone masons brought from England by
Bishop Chase to construct the early buildings at
Kenyon College settled in this area. In the
1850's with the help of Episcopal Bishop
Gregory T. Bedell, they and other families in
the community built "Quarry Chapel" on land
given by John Bateman. William Fish, owner of
a nearby quarry donated the sandstone. The
church stood unused and deteriorating since
1937. Restoration began in 1972.
