From "Lutherans in Berks County 1723-1923" Pbl. by the Reading Conference of The Evangelical Lutheran Ministerium of Penna. and Adjacent States, Pg.#255; "The church was at first known as "The Forest", but now as "Robeson", but popularly, "The Plow". This church was originally built for a Lutheran congregation exclusively. In a paper drawn up in 1779 the members declare that they have built a house of divine worship for a Protestant Lutheran congregation and for none other minister or preacher......When the building was erected in 1810 the Reformed also assisted and have used it ever since as a house of divine worship conjointly with the Lutherans."
