History and Architecture:

The Church dates back to 1853 when the first Wesleyan church services were held in homes in the small farming community of Highton. In October 1854, at the present site, the foundation stone of the first brick church was laid and services were being held there by early 1855.

The Church was erected in 1868. On July 21st, 1926 a tornado hit Highton and wrecked the church. The church was rebuilt and opened again in 1927.
