The Latrobe Presbyterian Church began as a mission in 1852, but was officially authorized to form as a church on March 1, 1869, after the application to the Presbytery of Blairsville was approved. The first elected pastor at the newly established church was the Reverend S.M. Davis from Saltsburg Presbytery.
