Corner House Christian Church History


Jesse Hall, “a man of unblemished character, of broad sense, zealous and given to hospitality”, started a Baptist Church in his home. The Bible and the “Christian Baptist”, written by Alexander Campbell became the main books of study for this young congregation.

Land was donated on the corner and a building was built. The church was known  as “The Church on the Corner”, and then became known as Corner House Christian Church.


Walter Scott, evangelist for the Western Reserve Baptist Association, came to Hubbard. Following his teaching and preaching, we became simply a New Testament Church. John Applegate was the congregation’s first minister.



The services ceased and the doors of the church were closed due to age and neglect and the death of many of the charter members.


Church doors were re-opened on June 24.
