Church History:

The Vernon Presbyterian Church was founded on May 11, 1825. Reverend John Finley Crowe had come to the Vernon area with the intention of beginning an academy. After preaching, he conducted a meeting at which 8 members joined the church. He continued to serve Vernon as pastor, but decided to locate his college in Hanover.
