Hurricane Church

Hurricane Fork Church was organized in 1818, in what became Fillmore township, and was the first church of any denomination organized in the county. Savages (native Indians) attended some of the earliest meetings. The church was establilshed while exploration of the wilderness was still going on, and arms were extended to the nearby settlements to form sister churches. The records have been preserved. A hand-drawn survey or map by Isaac Hill was found in his powder horn for his musket, and it shows the first settlements, from which churches were gathered.
