Long Description:
I found no information on the church.

This is an historic church built in 1869 from limestone quarried about a mile away. The main sanctuary is constructed of different sized quarry-faced stones that have several stained glass windows. The small reception area is constructed of clapboard siding. The roof is of asphalt shingles. There is a bell tower on the roof made of the same clapboard construction with a small steeple with a cross on top. A sign on the Church reads: Methodist Church.
