Marker Text:

Before organizing in 1853 this congregation met in homes. The following year services were led in the New Oakwood schoolhouse and later in the Bosqueville College. In 1875, under the leadership of the Rev. W.T. Melgin, the first building was constructed on this site which had been donated by Dr. Warren Wortham. The Rev. Mordecai Yell was among the outstanding circuit riders who served here. The present building was finished in 1911-12, under the pastorate of the Rev. M.H. Bowden. In 1953 the educational facilities were added.
