Inscription. The Brothersville Methodist Church was organized in March 1852 in the community of Brothersville to serve the fifteen families living there. The building completed in 1853, was dedicated in 1854 by Bishop George Pierce. In 1890 the church was moved a short distance to the village of Hephzibah and later the name was changed to the Hephzibah Methodist Church. Many outstanding citizens have gone from its ranks to other communities. Among them are Rev. Milton Anthony Clark, for thirty years a missionary to the Indians in Oklahoma, and Rev. W.H. Clark.
