In 1822 a Baptist church was organized at the house of David Hayes near the site of the present cemetery. In 1827-28, influenced by a visit from Walter Scott, most of the members were converted to the new Disciple faith. A church was erected soon after on land purchased from William Dean. A burial ground was provided at the site with existing grave markers dating to 1837. The congregation grew so rapidly that in 1848 some of the members withdrew to form a second Disciple church in the village of Canfield. By 1867 most of the original founders had died and the dwindling congregation decided to unite with the church in town. The old frame church was abandoned but remained a landmark until it was razed in the late 1880’s. Today only the carriage step stone remains as a reminder of the church location. The Dean Hill Cemetery continues to serve as a final resting place for the descendants of its founders and for the Canfield community.
