First Methodist Church

"Oldest existing brick church north of the Missouri River.  Built of hand made bricks with walls 18 inches thick.

Records establish that Mrs. Catherine Collier built this church in 1831.  It was used by her Methodist Episcopal Congregation (established 1821) until 1855 when a larger structure was necessary.  Concerned about the education fo protestant children, white and black, Mrs. Collier also used the building for  a school" ~ text of marker
