"The church at Hustonville having no suitable house of worship, [William Logan Williams] raised a sufficient fund--six thousand dollars--to build the present commodious edifice, which stands to-day as a monument to his energy and liberality. It was dedicated in 1855 by H. T. Anderson. Encouraged by this success, [Williams] entered the field again to raise funds to build a college to be under the control of the church. In a short time he secured twelve thousand dollars with which was erected Christian College, a handsome brick structure about one hundred feet long by fifty feet wide, and three stories in height." (John T Brown, ed., Churches of Christ, 1904, at
