1. First Methodist Church Marker
Inscription. Circuit-riding Methodist preachers conducted worship services in this area as early as 1824. In 1841 the Rev. J. P. Sneed organized a Methodist church here as part of his circuit, which included Victoria, Port Lavaca, and Seguin. By 1843 the Gonzales church had a full- time pastor. The congregation has continued to meet at this site since its founding, building larger facilities through the years as the membership grew. An integral part of Gonzales history, the First Methodist Church continues to serve the community with a variety of programs.
