The first missionaries known to have visited Kentucky were Samuel H. Smith and Reynolds Cahoon. They passed through the northern part of Kentucky in late June 1831 on their way to Missouri. The first branch organized was at Drury Creek in Campbell County. It was established in April 1834 by Robert Culbertson. The first conference of the Church in Kentucky was held 26 February 1836.
