Die Frieden Kirche or Peace Church was begun by a group of German farmers who worshipped in their homes. The Reverend Anthony Hautz officially organized the congregation in 1793. In 1797 a small log house was purchased for use as a School, home for a schoolmaster and a temporary church. Construction of Peace Church began in 1798 and was completed and dedicated on May 19, 1799. In 1969, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania acquired Peace Church.
