In 1875, Theodore Woolsey Bacon and David Bacon, two grandsons of Rev. David Bacon, came from the east coast and selected a boulder for the monument to their grandfather. They had it engraved with the following statement: Here the First Church in Tallmadge was gathered in the House of Rev. David Bacon, January 22, 1809. The monument was dedicated on June 2, 1881. The site was later annexed by Akron, and the area surrounding the memorial is called David Bacon Park.Courtesy of Tallmadge History Digital Exhibit, Akron-Summit Co. Public Library.
