This site was deeded for a church on April 1, 1835. The congregation was organized and a log structure built in 1837. The present church was completed in 1850. It was constructed of hand-sawed timber cut on the grounds. It survives as the oldest United Methodist church in West Tennessee. The adjoining cemetery dates back to 1830.
