First United Church - Belvidere, TN

First United Church - Belvidere, TN

This church is located 1/4 mile north of US64 in Belvidere, TN (in Franklin County) along Owl Hollow Rd. In 1873, the church was founded by Swiss-German settlers as the German Reformed Church and was the first such church in Tennessee. The church became the center of Swiss culture in this area which was noted for its advanced agriculture techniques. A 1934 union created the Evangelical and Reformed Church. In 1957, this denomination merged with the Congregational Christian Church to form the United Church of Christ.
