Biographical or historical data
The First Presbyterian Church of Mont Vernon, Indiana was founded in 1837 by missionary William Pennell and Mr. Keith. There were 15 charter members and they held services at Mr. Keith's home. The congregation grew and a church building was constructed on Store Street (now College Avenue) in 1842. The church continued to grow and property was purchased in 1872 and a new building was built and dedicated on October 16, 1873. Many changes and additions have occurred since the dedication, but the congregation continues to worship in the sanctuary built more than 140 years ago.
