1. Sunflower Church Marker
Inscription.

Samuel Ellicott deeded this lot in 1837, and it is the fourth oldest Methodist Church in continuous use in the county. The stained glass and painted windows were added during renovations in 1887. The nickname derives from the pattern of the large round window. Union troops stationed in town, as well as those on their way to battle, worshipped here.
