A little history...(from 1976)
In 1857, the Dell Evangelical United Brethren Church was organized in the home of James Coleman Smith, who, with his famiy, had migrated to Clinton Township in the year of 1856. A class was formed by Rev. R. Powell and Rev. Hambleton, missionaries from Milwaukee and was known as the Weister Creek Class of the Kickapoo Mission of the united Brethren Church in Christ.
The first settlers had come in 1854 and by 1857 the area was well populated by settlers from Ohio and a few other eastern states. They had found a benevolent wilderness that gave them water, fuel, game, fish and rich soil for growing their gardens and crops. One thing was lacking--a church where they could worship God and share their joys and griefs. The missionaries were accepted with love and open hearts.
