For many years local Methodists were forced to travel a considerable distance to attend services. In 1873, Houston's School House was established as a preaching place within the local circuit. The success of this effort stimulated interest in building a church. On September 11, 1877, Robert B. Houston conveyed an acre of land at this location for that purpose. Construction of Houston Methodist Episcopal Church was completed the following year. The church became the focus of community life, hosting traditional events such as Children's Day, Homecoming. and Christmas Entertaintment. Outdoor services or "bush" meetings were held nearby, bringing spiritual renewal to those in attendance. The church was renamed in 1955.
