Notes
Survey number HABS WV-210-35
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-38).
Significance: This is the oldest church structure in Malden and is one of the earliest Presbyterian churches in the Kanawha Valley. It was built in 1840 to house a congregation established circa 1819. The name of the church preserves a former name of the Malden community, Kanawha Salines, which had derived from the production of salt, a major early nineteenth-century industry in the area. The building is rated as one of three pivotal structures in the Malden Historic District.
