1. First Methodist Church of Lockney Marker
Inscription. This church traces its history to 1890, when The Rev. R. M. Morris led about twenty-five Methodists in organizing a new congregation. The church members met for worship in the local schoolhouse and under arbors until a frame sanctuary was completed in 1908. A larger brick building replaced the first church structure in 1920. To serve the growing membership, the congregation built a new facility in the 1950s. In addition to worship and educational programs, the church has been involved in community activities and worldwide missionary endeavors.
 
Erected 1990 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 1761.)
