The post office for the village of Dustin was established on November 9, 1883. Two and a half years later, on July 21, 1886, a Congregational Church was organized as testimonies, articles of faith, and a covenant were assented to and officers were elected. The original members numbered fifteen. Three months later, on October 18th, church land was deeded and the membership adopted the name of the Dustin Congregational Church. The church building was dedicated on September 11, 1887.
