Notes The Independent Presbyterian Church belongs to the Christopher Wren School and is suggestive of St.-Martins-in-the-Field of London. It was founded in 1755 as a branch of the Church of Scotland. The present building is a reproduction of the one erected in 1819 which was destroyed by fire in 1889. Lowell Mason, while organist here, composed the famous hymn: "From Greenland's Icy Mountains." Woodrow Wilson was married in 1885 to Ellen Axson, granddaughter of the Pastor, the marriage taking place in the manse.
