Churches - First Methodist Church and Parsonage

The First Methodist Church was formed between 1780 and 1784 as part of the Yadkin Circuit.  The church building and parsonage pictured here were approved for construction in 1857.  A. B. Herndon designed this Romanesque style church.  It was remodeled and enlarged several times and continued to serve the congregation until it was replaced in 1920.  The parsonage continued to serve ministers and their families until 1958 when it was razed to make way for the present church, located on Church Street between Fisher and Bank.  A new parsonage was built on Colony Road.
