Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Smithton History

Our History

Early settlers of the Youghiogheny Valley were introduced to the liberal faith of Universalism by an itinerant minister, E. Davis Bacon. On June 9, 1860 in the red brick school house on Port Royal Hill, the first Universalist Church in Southwestern Pennsylvania was organized. Converted into a home years ago, the school house still stands on Fitz Henry Road, two miles north of the current church site in Smithton.

In 1887, the present church was built on land donated by George Smith. The bell, which is still functional, was donated by Mr. Thomas of Philadelphia; for many years, the church was known as the Thomas Universalist Church.   Edit
