Warrior Run Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1835. PA 147, 8 miles north of Milton

As its name suggests, this brick meetinghouse with a Doric portico, picturesquely set in a grove of trees, was built for a Scots-Irish congregation. It is the third church on this site. Seventy-three Revolutionary soldiers are interred in its walled cemetery. In the vicinity are two important houses: the Federal-style Hower-Slote House (1829), just north of McEwensville, has been a working farm for 125 years, and is built on the site of Fort Freeland, where a Revolutionary War skirmish occurred in 1779; and to the west of Turbotville is the William Kirk House (1828).
