Historic highlights of the First Presbyterian Church of Beloit are the bell, bell tower and narthex that were added in 1951. The church obtained one of only six bells cast for the United States Centennial in 1876 as a replica of the Liberty Bell. That Liberty bell still rings beautifully from the church bell tower. A Wicks pipe organ with chimes was also purchased in 1955.
The present First Presbyterian Church of Beloit has evolved over many years. The church was established in March of 1872 with 13 charter members. The congregation met for worship in a building on the northeast corner of Mill and South Street for a few years and then used the Methodist Church after it was built. In the spring of 1877, the congregation decided to build their own house of worship and the first sermon was delivered in the new church building in August 1878.
