In the early 1860s, settlers worked together to select the very best location to build Unity Church & Cemetery. They gathered enough money from local families to build Unity Church before building had even commenced. The Church became a thriving entity, but due to changing times, ceased to hold regular services in 1948. Still to this day, on the second Sunday of September at 2:30 pm, the pews are almost filled with people whose hearts and souls are in this property.
