HISTORY OF FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Like the early settlers who named this community Manchester, after the important manufacturing center in Great Britain, those disciples of the Christian church were forward looking. They not only peered through the forest primeval which surrounded them, but they looked far into the future. On April 3, 1824, five citizens met under the leadership of the teacher-educator Rev. David Smith to form the First Presbyterian Church. The persons who were the actors in this scene were Mr. & Mrs. Isaac Smith, Mrs. Isaac Smith Jr., Mrs. Stephen Childs and Abraham Mesler.
