1. First United Methodist Church of Anson Marker
Inscription. This congregation was organized in 1882 by the Rev. J.C. Strickland, a pioneer Methodist circuit rider. In 1908, during the pastorate of the Rev. W.H. Terry, local builder Thomas Veitch constructed this Romanesque Revival building for the church. The original bell tower was eventually lowered to avoid possible wind damage. Later additions to the sanctuary reflect the growth of the church, a leader in Ansonís development for over a century.
