Historical Sketch

Trinity UMC was organized and built in 1927 and was formerly known as the Main Street Methodist Church. It was located one block south of the present structure on the corner of Mary and Main Streets.

Some of the membership of the abandoned Little Marion Methodist Church was transferred to Trinity. The Rev. Mrs. Josephine Huffer was assigned as pastor of Main Street church in 1924 and continued as pastor of Trinity Church until her death in November 1953, thus serving the same congregation for nearly 30 years.

In June 1954, Rev. Buell W. Dalton was assigned pastor of Trinity, coming to this appointment from a church in Nashville, Tennessee.
