Appomattox County, Virginia
— c.1870-1969 —Hermon Methodist Church was established in c.1870 in Appomattox County, Virginia. The church was named for the biblical Mount Hermon. It was located east of Route 24 on what is now property of the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. A graveyard visible from the highway indicates the old church site.In 1900 Hermon Methodist Church was dismantled and rebuilt near the foot of Piney Mountain, east of Oakville in Appomattox County. Mr. W.H.S. Barlow and his wife Florence Hamilton Barlow donated two acres of land for the church. Here families gathered—as many as four generations at once—to worship and support each other through the passages of life.
