1. Methodism in Collingsworth County Marker
Inscription. Originating in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, most Collingsworth County communities were small settlements that grew up around area ranches. A number of Methodist congregations were formed throughout the county by circuit-riding ministers. Worshipers met in such places as private homes, dugouts, school buildings, open-air arbors, and Union churches with other denominations. The smaller congregations gradually disbanded and joined larger churches, and by 1984 they had all affiliated with the Wellington Church.
 
Erected 1990 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 3350.)
