“…a group of people from Cumberland County, Pennsylvania settled and founded the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church at the south end of Bourbon County near the Fayette County line. This group sent George Pomeroy and John Veech to a conference of ministers and representatives of various churches held July 12, 1785 at Cane Run Meeting House in Mercer County to ask for membership. By April, 1787 Hopewell Church was a member of the Transylvania Presbytery.”
