Cedar Hill in Dallas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
First United Methodist Church of Cedar Hill
The first church occupied by this congregation was destroyed by a tornado in 1856, two years after the fellowship was organized. A frame building was erected in 1883 on a lot adjacent to this site. It was replaced in 1900 by this structure. Typical of many churches that once dominated the countryside, this edifice has an off-center entry tower and Gothic detailing. The bell placed here in 1900 still summons worshipers.
