Center Point in Kerr County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Center Point United Methodist Church
In 1852, before there was a town here, Mrs. Henrietta Rees and her children came from Tennessee. Soon, she arranged for Methodist Circuit Riders to come to this area. One acre was bought for a Church in 1872 from W. G. ("Gabe") Cocke and his wife Vanilla. About 1876 the Rev. W. E. Pafford and Turley Cocke built a Church house. This site was purchased in 1883 from James Sellers. After a storm destroyed the first building under construction, a second was erected. This third structure was completed in 1911 by the men of the congregation.
Erected 1979 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 787.)
