Lone Oak in Hunt County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Lone Oak Methodist Church
The history of this church can be traced to 1854, when eleven charter members gathered together in a private home west of Lone Oak to organize a Methodist congregation. Occasionally served by circuit riding ministers, the members constructed a church building in 1871 which they shared with the local Masonic Lodge. Continued growth and the loss of the first building in an 1884 fire led to the construction of this vernacular gothic revival structure in 1889, featuring twin bracketed towers and lancet windows, it continues to serve the congregation.
Erected 1988 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 14123.)
