Comments

"The Presbytery of Philadelphia north, according to Rev. Richard Montgomery's account in Bean's History, were the means, under God, of starting the Presbyterian Church at Ashbourne...In 1878 a Sunday School was opened in a bldg. offered kindly by R. J. Dobbins. The same year a church was formed... In 1883 a contract was made with Bird & Given, of Philadelphia, to build a church from the plans of Isaac Pursell. The bldg. was finished in 1884, having cost $15,000. It should be added that this bldg. is a pretty one of stone, having a basement and a transept. There is a solid tower containing the porch and surmounted by a spire."
