Regarding Culleoka Methodist Church.
The congregation, established in the early part of the nineteenth century, built the church in 1838 and moved it to its present location in 1868. That same year the Culleoka Institute was established in the basement of the church. Two years later William R. Webb became principal of the school which would develop into Webb School, one of the best preparatory schools in the region. Classes were held in the Culleoka Methodist Episcopal Church South until 1876 when a new school was built.
