Inscription.  

Services conducted in 1896-98 by the Rev. C. Charnquist in homes of Taylorís early settlers led to the founding (1900) of the Swedish Methodist Episcopal Church, North. Buying the chapel of a disbanded group, the congregation increased, moving their church to this site in 1911. Membership stabilized at about 240 in the 1920s. In 1935 English became the language in regular use. National religious trends led to name changes. The interior of the sanctuary was remodeled in 1950; annex added in 1963. Twenty-eight pastors have served this church.
 
Erected 1976 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 9361.)
