Justus Rutherford, a native of Manor Hamilton, County Leitrim, Ireland received a land grant for military services. In 1844, he donated part of his property for a church and cemetery. The first burial took place in 1845 and was that of Alexander Miller, who came from Kirkintilloch, Scotland.

The Wesleyan Methodist circuit dedicated a church as early as 1836. The present church was built about 1852 and became known as Miller’s Church. In 1925, it became a United Church.
