THE LITTLE BROWN CHURCH. This is the only picture which shows only the Little Brown Church without other buildings. It was isolated from a picture taken in 1902 at the dedication of Zion Lutheran Church's cornerstone.

A self-exiled group from the German Lutheran Church purchased one-half acre of land from Aaron Boyer. With the help of the English Lutherans a church was erected on Engle's Mill Road. It was dedicated in 1869. The church was known officially as Lutheran Evangelical Trinity Church of Accident.

The English congregation moved into a new structure in 1895, located in the center of the village. In 1908 the German congregation dissolved and gave the Little Brown Church building to the English group. It was razed in 1920 and the lumber was used when a new parsonage was erected for the Accident Lutheran Parish.
