The church meeting house was constructed in 1788. Upon its completion, local Presbyterians began worshipping in the building. In 1800, the Winchester Presbytery officially established the congregation as the "Presbyterian Church in Winchester." The first pastor was the Rev. Dr. William Hill.[3] Hill was the pastor of Daniel Morgan, and gave his funeral sermon.[4]

The church building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
