History

Mt Adams Pilgrim Chapel began as a Presbyterian Church in 1886. Since 2001, we have been an autonomous congregation in good standing as a member of the United Church of Christ. Founded in 1886, the Meetinghouse (building) of Pilgrim Chapel is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The United Church of Christ is heir to the great tradition of the Mayflower Pilgrims as well as the historic Reformed Church faith and order. The Congregationalist tradition of the Pilgrims has given America many of its finest universities and colleges including Harvard, Yale, Williams, Amherst, Dartmouth, and, in Ohio, Oberlin, Marietta and Defiance. The people of Pilgrim Chapel covenant together to “walk in the ways of the Lord known to us, or to be made known to us.” If you have no Church home you are welcome to come and share in the joy that is ours at Pilgrim Chapel. Because it is a unique and historic part of Cincinnati’s spiritual history, the 125 year old Chapel has been carefully restored to maintain its historic character.

  1. Do you have baptism records from about 1930 from the Pilgrim Presbyterian Church? I am looking for a record for Bettie Carnell, daughter of Samuel and Effie Carnell who were active members at that time. Samuel was my Uncle and served as SS Superintendent. By the way, I am a Commissioned Minister in the UCC and friend of Rev. David Schwab when he served the Eastern Ohio Assn. and Ohio Conference. Please say hello. Thanks for your assistance.
