Lewie Chapel, a Methodist church founded on this site in the 1870s by Solomon R. Lewie (1835-1878) and others, was later known as Lewiedale Methodist Church and after 1910 as Gilbert Methodist Church. The original sanctuary, replaced in 1960 by a new sanctuary about 1 mile west, burned in the early 1970's.

The town of Gilbert, also known as Gilbert Hollow was called Lewiedale from 1866 to 1899 after the family of Samuel (1802-1865) and Nancy Hendrix Lewie (1807-1865). Four of six Lewie sons saw Confederate service in the 15th S.C. Infantry, with Frederick S.(1831-1873) as its lieutenant colonel and James H. (1838-1889) as a captain. Several family members are buried here.
