Inscription. A direct outgrowth of the New Mill Creek Society organized in 1772 by the Rev. Joseph Pilmoor, the first official Methodist missionary to America. Methodist meetings were held as early as 1770 in the Cutherell home, a regular preaching place for more than forty years. The first meeting house, called Cutherell’s or Cutherell Church, was located about one mile west of here. The present building was built in 1852 and has since been enlarged.
