Inscription.  A pioneer church, organized in the Armour community, about two miles to the west, on April 10, 1873, when this area was still thinly-settled. Charter members were John and Caroline Askew, A. J. Moore, Leona Waddell, and George Walker. The original one room frame church building with a spire and belfry was erected in 1874. After the Trinity & Brazos Valley Railroad bypassed Armour, the congregation in 1904 moved its building to Coolidge. Under the leadership of the Rev. J. B. Curry and Hull Askew, a son of charter members, the present edifice was built in 1922.
 
Erected 1974 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 5601.)
