1. First Methodist Church of Robert Lee Marker
Inscription. The Rev. Green Cotton Fields organized this Methodist congregation in January 1891. A one-room frame sanctuary built on this site in 1896 was replaced by a second structure in 1907. This structure was completed in 1928, during the pastorate of the Rev. J.D. Ramsey. Exhibiting elements of the Classical Revival style, it features paired art glass windows and a triumphal-arch entryway. The church continues to be an important part of the community.
