Long Description:

The study house was built in 1810-1811 and over the years has been used for many purposes. At one time it was the caretaker’s dwelling. It was remodeled in 1976, with careful attention given to preserving all the historic aspects of the building and architecture, and dedicated as the William Kerr Study House in honor of Reverend William Kerr, pastor from 1807-1821. Today it houses the records of the Church and Society, the pastor’s office, and meeting rooms.
