- Biographical or historical data
- The establishment of Mount Calvary Lutheran and German Reformed Church, previously known as Hawksbill Church and Gomer's Church, is unknown. However, the church used a pewter communion set, bearing the date 1727, one year after the first settlement at Massanutten. In a deed, dated 1765, John Schwarbach and his wife, Margaret, conveyed three acres of land near Luray, Virginia to the trustees of Hawksbill Church, thereby providing the site for the present church. Originally a union church, in 1822 the union dissolved and the Lutherans acquired the property, erecting the present church in 1848. Mount Calvary Church was the mother church of five Lutheran congregations in Page County: Morning Star, Beth Eden, St. Mark's, St. James, and Grace. The congregation became inactive in 1959.
