Frisco in Collin County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Frisco Methodist Church
A school building erected by the church in the early 1870s was converted for use as a sanctuary in 1882. In 1874 Joseph Rogers donated land on which the church held camp meetings that became such large events that a large shed was built at the site in 1888.
In 1902 the church moved here to the new railroad town of Frisco, erected a sanctuary at a downtown location, and changed its name to Frisco Methodist Church. A new brick sanctuary was completed in 1915.
The congregation changed its name to First United Methodist Church of Frisco in 1968. In 1982, after 80 years of serving Frisco from its downtown facilities, the congregation erected a new sanctuary at this site to serve its growing membership. Over the years the congregation has expanded its education programs.
Erected 1994 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 6161.)
