In February of 1826 Jesse Calvert deeded land "for a place to preach and espouse the word of God." Much of the land in the area was owned by Joseph Carter whose son, James, ran a paper mill located near where the church stood. The mill was converted into a wool mill which later burned, giving the name of "Burnt Factory" to the area. On April 8th, 1925 the original church was torn down and the lumber sold at public auction in May to generate funds for a new church. Later that same year a yard party was held and the proceeds from both put toward the new church. The cornerstone of the present day church was laid in July of 1926 and the sanctuary dedicated in June of 1928.
