In 1811 when Stephen Hempstead, a hero of the Revolutionary War, moved to St. Louis, he found that there was not a single Protestant Church in the entire area. Due to his persistent pleas to the Congregational Missionary Society of Connecticut, the Society sent Rev. Salmon Giddings to St. Louis in 1816.
