Historical Sketch

In 1836, a class of the Methodist Episcopal Church was organized at the home of Archibald Clark. The Clark home served as its meeting place until 1853 when the original church building was constructed. It was named Ball Hill because the District Superintendent was named Ball and the church's pastor was named Hill. This original frame structure was used until 1870 when it was destroyed by fire. The church was replaced at a cost of $1900 and dedicated in November 1871. Several remodelings followed. A vestibule and belfry were built in 1910 followed by a basement(1933) and the addition of an electric organ in 1951. The church has been closed by the Annual Conference.
