In 1850 seventeen Irish immigrants met in the home of Matthew Erwin Sr. and organized what became the Southfield United Presbyterian Church. Two years later they relocated a vacant church building to this site and met there until the present Greek Revival style chapel was built in 1862. In 1912 laborers, using horses and wooden shovels, dug a basement under the church. The education unit and sanctuary date from 1953 and 1960 respectively.
