Long Description:
Hic A Sha Ba Ha Spring
Methodist circuit rider Jacob Matthews conducted this area's first Methodist worship service near this site in 1834. The first meeting, held in a grove of sweet gum trees next to a spring known by the Choctaw Indians as Hicashabaha, led to the establishment of the Methodist Church in Boardtown in 1835.
