Oakey Streak Methodist Church
—1850—

The Methodist Episcopal Church South at Oakey Streak was organized before December 7, 1850 when A.M. Reid sold ten acres, more or less, to Richard W. Prewett, William Hammonds, Daniel B. Shine, James W. Shine & A.M. Reid, church trustees. S.T. & H.C. Smith witnessed the deed and the latter proved it September 19, 1868 before R.S. Hughes, J.P. The first church was built of logs & served for many years before being replaced by the present structure.
