The Christ Church was built in 1862 and on the National Register. The congregation was founded in 1842, one of the oldest in Washington County, and the oldest in Germantown, by settlers from the Hunsruck area of Germany
It was called Evangelisch Christus Kirche. In 1890, three bells were purchased for the new bell tower, which are still rung today. Next to the church is a pioneer cemetery.
CURRENT NEWS: We have renovated our exhibits in the Christ Church of Local History. Our director, Irene Blau, for over 30 years has retired in 2009. In honor of her dedication of our history preservation, her portrait and biography will become permanent displays in the museum.
