Inscription.  Methodist worship services were held in Eastland County as early as 1865. Soon after the town of Eastland was laid out in 1875, Methodists began meeting in a small log house. The congregation was organized and served for a time by the Rev. Melville B. Johnson, a circuit rider. Soon after this property was purchased in 1882, a building known as the “Little White Church” was constructed. It served the congregation until a new sanctuary was completed during the Eastland County oil boom of the 1920s.
 
Erected 1985 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 1887.)
