Inscription.  The Carthage United Methodist Church was established in 1846 when Mrs. Joseph Eads became the first member during a revival held by a Methodist circuit rider. Rev. Alexander S. Parker was appointed as the first pastor in 1847. The first sanctuary, a wooden frame structure with a belfry, was built at this location in 1889. In 1928 this sanctuary would be replaced with a brick building featuring memorial stained glass windows.
