William Henry Foote, D. D., celebrated author of Foote's Sketches of Virginia. It was separated from the Woodstock congregation in September, 1826, to form the Strasburg charge. The lot was deeded by Isaac Longacre to Anthony Spengler for use of the "English Presbyterian congregation", June 29, 1827. The building was dedicated May 16, 1830, and was used as a hospital by Federal troops during the Civil War.
