The Living Church
Guinston, founded in 1754, was a church before America was a nation. Consider what this congregation has witnessed and participated in over the years. It endured the early stages of colonization in a forest wilderness. It saw America transform into a great and independent nation.
At the same time our charter members built the first log church, a discouraged twenty-two year old named George Washington nearly died from Indian attacks, hardships and the dangers of travel. In 1773, while plans were made to construct our great stone building, the British were imposing punishments as a result of the Boston Tea Party. This stone building remains standing and is used for worship services intermittently throughout the year.
