It is believed that the earliest settlement of German Reformed and Lutherans was in the area between Abbotts Creek and Leonard’s Creek. The center of this settlement is the congregation, first called “The Dutch Congregation on Abbotts Creek,” later Leonhardt’s Church, and now known as Old Pilgrim Church. The land was chosen for the church about 1753, and a brush arbor was built and used for worship until a log church was built sometime between 1757 and 1764.
