Long Description:
Methodist missionaries preached here in the 1820s and in 1833 a class was organized. Services were held in homes and schoolhouses, and in 1853 several denominations combined to build a union church. The cornerstone of the present building was laid in 1872, and the church was dedicated on June 14, 1873. Members donated time and materials to reduce the cost to $7,000. To escape a noisy railroad the church was moved to its present location in 1901.

NEW: Instructions for logging Missing Marker Visits.

If the Marker is missing, but still listed here, you must provide a photo of you at the actual item historically honored. (This should be the waymark's "default" image). Indicate in your log that you took your photo at the Historical Location instead of the marker, because the marker was missing. Please also still include a bit about your visit to the site.
