Hutchins in Dallas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
First Methodist Church of Hutchins
The town of Hutchins was formed in 1872 with the completion of the Houston & Texas Central Railroad. The Rev. John M. Davis and 8 charter members founded this church in December 1887. They met in a farmhouse owned by R. A. Simpson, and later shared facilities with the Christian Church of Hutchins. In 1891, a Methodist church was built on Main Street on land given by A. S. Clark. A new building was erected on Palestine Street in 1897. Fire destroyed that building and a parsonage in 1916, but they were rebuilt in 1917. The church has served the community for more than 100 years.
Erected 1996 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 6699.)
