Inscription.  First Methodist Church in the county. Began as Sunday School in home of Isaac Addison, early settler. Later moved to home of Mrs. Elizabeth Scott. Organized about 1839 by Robt. Alexander, famous pioneer minister. Soon a small, hand-hewn frame building was erected and named for Mrs. Scott. Land containing both the church and cemetery was given to Methodist Episcopal Church, South, by Mrs. Scott's son, Philip in 1878. Membership reached peak of 165 in 1885.

Church merged with the Cooks Point church about 1907.
