Photo of Church

“The Presbyterian Church at Milton was built in 1834 upon land purchased from Thara Messick, on Aug. 3, 1833. The church had been incorporated on July 4, 1833 at a meeting held in the Cool Spring Pres. Meeting-House. In 1865, the congregation was dissolved. In the adjoining cemetery the oldest inscribed tombstone is dated 1844. For many years the old cypress-shingled building was used as a school and later as a colored church. At the present time it is occupied by a colored lodge.” (1)
