1. Methodism in Collingsworth County Marker
Inscription.  Originating in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, most Collingsworth County communities were small settlements that grew up around area ranches. A number of Methodist congregations were formed throughout the county by circuit-riding ministers. Worshipers met in such places as private homes, dugouts, school buildings, open-air arbors, and Union churches with other denominations. The smaller congregations gradually disbanded and joined larger churches, and by 1984 they had all affiliated with the Wellington Church.
