1. Eureka United Methodist Church Marker
Inscription. Constructed in 1891 with funds secured from the local Methodists and the Mission Conference of 1890, this building is important in documenting the religious life of Eureka and Tintic. Methodism began in Tintic when Dr. Thomas C. Iliff visited and preached on June 18, 1890. Reverend W.A. Hunt was appointed first Pastor and succeeded by Dr. D.J. Gilliand, who finished the church structure. The Gothic-style tower houses the original bell. It was listed in the National Register of Historical Places on March 14, 1979 as part of the Eureka Historical District.
