Information About the Presbyterian Church and the Collection 

The First Presbyterian Church of Batesville, Arkansas was established in 1842 and has functioned continuously since that date.  (Note:  For more information on the history of the congregation see Virginia Fitzhugh Jeffery and Lucy Jeffery Yeager, A Rich and Lasting Blessing:  A 150 Year History of the First Presbyterian Church of Batesville, Arkansas.)
