Oldest Church Building West of the Allegheny Mountains

Society of Methodists Organized, 1794.

First bishop of American Methodism, Francis Asbury, was present at the raising of the church, 1785; dedicated this log meeting house, 1786; and held three annual conferences in May, 1792, 1793, 1796.

The church was built chiefly by the means and through the industry of Edward Keenan, who deeded for church and burying grounds five acres for "as long as grass grows and water flows."

Restored in 1927 under supervision of Reverend George W. Richardson, presiding elder.
