1. First Methodist Church Marker
Inscription. This congregation traces its history to the summer of 1890, when a small group of worshipers led by the Rev. J.W. Montgomery gathered under a brush arbor on East Kickapoo Creek to organize a church. Later that year the Rev. G.F. Fair became the pastor of the church, which met in an old schoolhouse. A sanctuary was built in 1907 and served the congregation until it was replaced by a new structure in 1951. Throughout its history this congregation, which became the first United Methodist church in 1968, has been involved in missionary activities.
 
Erected 1988 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 1749.)
