Halifax Church Marker, R-78

Halifax Church is the oldest Presbyterian church in Halifax County. The Congregation was formed in June, 1830, from Cub Creek Church in Charlotte County. The organizational group included the Reverend Clement Read of Cub Creek and twenty-six local communicants including sixteen black members, mostly slaves. Visiting ministers preached occasionally at the church until June, 1831, when the Reverend Thomas A. Ogden began four years of service as the congregation's first pastor. The building was restored in 1983 and placed on the Virginia Landmarks Register in 1987.
