“The First Presbyterian Church of Bridgeville was started immediately after the Civil War. They were incorporated on Mar. 3, 1866. A church was built and it was dedicated in Mar., 1866 by the Rev. Alex Gulic. The church site was donated by Abraham G. R. Hale on Aug. 18, 1869. After functioning for fifty years, the congregation became so small that the church was sold, in 1917, to the Tuesday Night Club. This is an organization of Bridgeville women. In 1919, they instituted a circulating library.
