The First Presbyterian Church in Newhall was an outgrowth of the Sunday School classes that were held during the late 1870s and 1880s in the lounge of the Southern Hotel, on the second floor of the Newhall School, and in parishioners' homes. The original wooden chapel opened for business May 31, 1891, at Market Street and Newhall Avenue, on land donated by Margaret Jane (White) Newhall (Jan. 16, 1831 - Nov. 3, 1900), widow of Henry Mayo Newhall, who had died in 1882. The Newhall family donated about two-thirds of the construction costs.

In 1923, the wooden chapel was moved a couple of hundred feet toward Eighth Street and transformed into a two-story brick structure that was severely damaged in the Sylmar Earthquake of Feb. 9, 1971. The brick building continued to be used for church classes and meetings until a new church building was completed in 1977.
