A Presbyterian Sunday School was organized near Fairmont, Nebraska, in May of 1871. The following February, the First Presbyterian Church of Fairmont was organized under the direction of Rev. David Fleming. A church building was constructed, and later remodeled and enlarged.



On January 1, 1923, the Presbyterian Church federated with the Congregational Church of Fairmont, forming the Federated Community Church. In 1924 ground was broken for a new brick church building which was completed in 1926. The Federated Community Church of Fairmont held a celebration on January 4, 1946, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, and the 25th anniversary of the Federated Community Church.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
