Dates of existence


The Robertson Presbyterian Church was founded in 1908. The first minister, Reverend David James, served the church for eleven years. He was replaced by Dr. Alexander Esler in 1919. It was under Esler's ministry that the congregation voted against union with the Methodist Church. He remained the moderator until 1939 and then returned as interim moderator for two years during the war. The church was closed in 1977.
