Remark: The Presbyterians were the first religious group to organize a congregation and erect a house of worship in the southern part of Porter County. This church was located in Pleasant Township and erected at the village of Tassinong. The Tassinong church now would be in Morgan township given township boundary changes. The first session of the Tassinong Presbyterian Church took place on August 24, 1848, with Reverend Spencer Baker presiding with church elders George Biggart and John Freer. Services at the Tassinong Presbyterian Church church ceased in 1898. A new Presbyterian church structure at Kouts, seen here, was erected during 1903 and 1904, and the first session at the church was held in February of 1904.
