Long Description:
This Shermansdale Presbyterian Church was built in 1843, on land donated by William Smiley.

The Shermansdale Presbyterian Church is also known as the Sherman's Creek Presbyterian Church. The early history and organization of this church are in part, unclear. The church is first mentioned in the minutes of Presbytery in the spring of 1778, as "Sherman's Creek" congregation.

The church was located between Fio Forge and Dellville; but the date of construction is not clear. Records from 1801 report that the church was moved, first to a site called Boyd's and in 1802, to a site known as Adam Zorger's property.

A log church was built in 1804, at Pine Hill, approximately 100 yards from Sherman's Creek. This location is about 2-1/2 miles east of the present church. This log church stood until 1843. It was dismantled, and various materials from the old church were used in the construction of the present one.

The Shermansdale Church Congregation was united with the New Bloomfield Church at an unknown date.

Today, the church stands alone and in need of repairs.

Date the Church was built, dedicated or cornerstone laid: 01/01/1843
