1. Melrose Church Marker
Inscription. Melrose Presbyterian Church was built in 1883; held its first worship service in 1885 and closed the doors at the last worship service 102 years later in 1980. The building is constructed of poplar wood grown and milled in Wilson County.

The original windows were replaced with custom designed stained glass windows made by Mr. Robert Atwood of Lebanon, Tennessee. Family members donated the stained glass windows to memorialize the founding members long and faithful service to the church. The windows were designed by James Jordan and Geneva Thomas, members of the Friends of Fiddlers Grove.

Melrose Church is one of the most popular spots in Wilson County for small weddings. It is available for rental year around.

The pews and chairs were donated by Mr. & Mrs. Roy Howell in 1994. The building was donated by Melrose Presbyterian Church Trustees, Deacons and Members in 1994.
