The church was erected in 1809 at a cost of $4,500. It was located on the village green facing north. Methodists and Episcopalians built the church as a Union Church, meaning that it could be used by any religious society. In 1832, the Methodists built their own church and St. John’s was consecrated as an Episcopal Church by Bishop Brownell. In 1844, land was donated to the church by Charles S. Phelps of New York and the building was moved to its present location across the street from the green. In 1979, a history of the first 170 years of St. John’s was published. It details at length the interesting journey the people of St. John’s have made.
