History[edit]

Stone Church Road, is named after the Barton Stone Church at the corner of Upper James Street (21 Stone Church Road West). [1]

In the early days of the last century the townships of Ancaster and Barton, (on the mountain), were selected by American settlers, who came, for the most part from the state of Pennsylvania. Among these were the Rymals. William Rymal was also one of the first four trustees of Barton Stone Church. The church was first under the jurisdiction of the American Presbyterian church, but this authority ceased to exist around 1838 and then was confined under the Canadian church authority, which was established in 1844. [2]
