Old Lutheran Church Marker, K-76

Tradition has it that the church near by was built where Moravian and Lutheran missionaries preached soon after the revolution. Here, in 1796, Lutherans held services and, a little later, organized their first congregation in this section. In 1828, the Lutheran synod of North Carolina met here and consecrated the church.
