The early name of this ohuroh is somewhat confusing to the historian* In addition to the two names given above it was also known as “Weldenthal” in colonial days* “Weidenthal” meaning willow valley, named after a small creek still called Willow Creek on U.S. geological maps* Dryville also is more or less the modem name. On old maps the village is called “Stonoy Point”.
