to a church history written by the Reverend Eugene B. Fernald, A.B.,
M.Div. on the occasion of the 160th Anniversary of the church in 1987...
Presbyterian Church was organized August 11, 1827 as a Presbyterian
congregation for New Canton and Cartersville, VA.
1840 what was then known as "Upper Trinity Church" was built at the top
of Main Street in New Canton Village. "Lower Trinity Church" was the
congregation at Cartersville.
In 1881, Trinity Church voted the "Welsh Chapel" to be founded at the
slate mines in nearby Arvonia.
On November 30, 1883, Upper Trinity Presbyterian Church separated from
Lower Trinity Presbyterian.
By September 26, 1885, the Welsh Chapel was organized from members of
Trinity Church. This chapel is the present-day Arvon
Church, a member of Christ Parish.
And all God's people said, "Amen!"
