Inscription. Organized in 1898 with eight charter member families: Messrs. and Mmes. W. T. Baze, A. D. Dodson, F. M. German, W. B. Stanfield, I. W. Wasson, A. C. Wilmeth; Mlles. Clare Dodson, Lola Morris; and Mrs. Nannie German.

First building was erected on deep creek on land donated by A. C. Wilmeth. Some members had to wade creek after rains.

The church was octagonal in shape, but known as "Little Round Church." Membership growth, 1909, required removal and remodeling. In 1950, congregation doubled after oil discovery. The present church was erected in 1953.
 
Erected 1967 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 1702.)
