The town has agricultural origins and is known for its many picturesque churches, particularly Churchville Presbyterian Church, at the center of town. The population of the area is 2,818.

Their home, Medical Hall, is still located in Churchville, and several of the Archer family are buried in the cemetery at Churchville Presbyterian Church.
