Ebenezer was first mentioned in available church records in 1822. In 1837, Rev. John H. Propps donated land for the camp ground near the Center Point Cemetery. John Henry, one of the founders of the original camp ground near Old Washington, sent his son John Henry, Jr. to handle moving arrangements. John Henry is buried in the Center Point Cemetery. After moving two more times, seeking more space and spring water, Ebenezer trustees purchased the present 40 acre site in 1837.
