|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Hyattstown Christian Church was organized in 1840. The original log building was located about a half mile south of the present Church, which is the site of our parish cemetery. Jesse Hyatt, who established this town, rests in ourchurch cemetery.
It has been reported that Alexander Campbell, one of the founders of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) may have preached in our first building on his way to the constitutional convention.
The congregation outgrew the modest facilities at the bottom of the hill, and relocated to our present address in 1870. The Sanctuary that was built at the time, is still the center of our worship 157 years later. The Sanctuary was most recently remodelled in 1989 in preparation for our Sesquicentennial celebrations throughout 1990.
We do not have a date for the building of our first parsonage, which was located on the alley to the south of the church. But the second parsonage was erected in 1920 and still serves as the residence of our pastor. The parsonage sits on the southeast corner of the Church property.
In 1950, the education building was completed. It contains the Fellowship Hall, a kitchen, our offices, classrooms and rest rooms (from the church website)
