Inscription.  In 1850 the Rev. Joseph P. Sneed and 23 charter members founded this congregation, the first church in the townsite of Waco. Services were held initially in a log cabin at Second and Jackson street. The Methodists shared their building with the First Baptist and the First Presbyterian churches. This fellowship worshiped at two other locations before moving to Fifth and Jackson street in 1876. The Fifth street congregation became First Methodist Church in 1919. The members moved to their present site in 1963.
