Burials 1809-present

The Welsh Church of Nelson, or the "Old Welsh Church" as it is often called, was built in 1876 by the Welsh immigrants who had settled in the Nelson area in the 19th century. As was the practice at the time, the church was given a name, "Peniel," i.e., "The Face of God." Sunday Services were conducted in Welsh until after WWI, when the latter generation Welsh Americans had lost facility in their mother tongue. It served that community as a Congregational Church with regular Sunday Services, until shortly after World War II. Since that time, it is officially a non-denominational Community Church, with Sunday Evening Services from the first Sunday of June to the second Sunday of September. The Church building itself was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
