HistoryEdit

Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church was organized on October 15, 1720 as part of a greater trend of growth of Presbyterianism in northern Delaware. In 1773 the original congregation split into two distinct churches, after which a log church was built to accommodate the Delaware congregation. This church was used until 1860, when the current brick church was constructed at its present site. The steeple was added in 1929. The current church was renovated in 1992, and again in 2007.[1]

CemeteryEdit

The church grounds encompass a 10-acre cemetery.[2][3]

Pollinator gardenEdit

In 2017 the church established a pollinator garden on its property.[4]
