Bishop Francis Asbury stopped in this region in 1801 and 1803. About 1811, a congregation was organized and by 1815, Jericho Meeting House was standing on land given by Jacob Felkel. The present building there was apparently erected before 1850. A low partition separating the men and women and a slave gallery were removed in 1890 and a porch was added. Two annexes were built later.
