In 1872, the Christian denomination erected a house of worship on the road about forty rods west of the village, and for several years the church prospered. In 1897 the church membership disbanded, and the building was donated to the Christian organization at Monticello, and was taken apart and moved to the latter place. The only church in Scotch Grove township at the present time (1910) is the Presbyterian church which holds regular services and the organization is maintained with a devotion worthy of its membership.
