The village of Fall Brook was founded by the Fall Brook Coal Company in the autumn of the year 1859 and in the cause of the following year the resident population had increased to five or six hundred, of whom a considerable number were Roman Catholic, but the majority were Protestant of different denominations, and chiefly of the Presbyterian body.

The want of religious ordinances being much felt by a part of the Protestant Community recourse was for some time had to the services of ministers or preachers of different evangelical denominations who could be induced to visit the place; but towards the close of the year 1860, or the beginning of the year 1861, it was resolved to petition the Presbytery of Susquehannag to take immediate steps with a new to the organization of a Presbyterian Church (old school) at Fall Brook. A petition to this effect was accordingly purscuted to the Presbytery a fores and, at the meeting of that reverend court which was held at Towanda on the ? (day badly faded and can't be read) day of February 1861.
