Inscription.  On March 31, 1860, Dr. Samuel Webb deeded the land for College Grove Methodist Episcopal Church South and a seminary for young ladies. The present Victorian structure was erected in 1888 by T. G. Slate. Two pioneer circuit riders who served here were Jeremiah W. Cullom and J. B. McFerrin. In 1955, the church became a full station. Among the families listed on the church's early register are Critchlow, Demonbreun, Drumright, Glenn, Haley, Jordan, Long, Maxwell, Miller Neely, Ogilvie and Patton. Memorial windows were added in 1952 and 1984. The steeple was erected in 1983 in honor of the Joe C. Bellenfant family.
