BLACKWATER PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Annual Service was held Sunday, October 2, 1921, by The Rev. Mr. Peter. K. Vanderkam,
pastor of the Presbyterian church at Frankford and Ocean View. There were residents of Wicomco and
Worcester county's in Maryland and many Delawareans to attend.
Rev. Vandekam's address “ Hold Fast To The Old Landmarks” was well received and it was
decided to hold monthly services once each month in the future.
Old Blackwater Church is more than 200 year old and believed to be one of the first
Presbyterian churches established in colonial America. One of the first pastors, Rev M. Tentant, was
said to be one of the founders of Princeton University.
