Taken from the “History of Champaign County, Ohio, by Judge Evan P. Middleton, Vol. I, 1917, pps. 433—529.
The Methodists, Presbyterians, and Baptists ‘were the first denominations to be represented by churches in the county. However, small societies of other churches ‘were feebly maintained in various neighborhoods at a comparatively early date; among these were the Universalist and Christian churches. The number of denominations in the county has increased until today there are twelve represented by sixty-six active societies which are most zealously carrying on the business of the Master. The historian has attempted to obtain the history of every church organization, past and present, in Champaign county. Immediately following is a list of all these churches, which have been classified into groups of active and discontinued or dormant churches.
