Long Description:
Scottish immigrants from Glasgow settled in Berlin Township in 1841. Ten years later, twenty-four of them founded the Almont Society of the New Church. They followed the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), a Swedish mathema-tician, philosopher and scientist whose Christian theological writings form the basis of the New Church. In 1875 members donated labor, materials and money to build this chapel, designed by church member William Morton.
