Methodist Historic SiteThe Methodist Church of Asbury, New Jersey, by official action of the Northern New Jersey annual Conference of the Methodist Church, is designated a Methodist Historic Site in recognition of the participation of Bishop Francis Asbury in laying the cornerstone of the church in 1796, on which date the town of Halls Mills, in which the Methodist Society was located, was renamed "Asbury," the first community in the United States to so honor the pioneer American Bishop.
