This historic church ceased to exist as an active congregation in 1995 and sat abandoned for seven years. Steve Head restored the church in 2002 and today he and group of trustees own the structure and maintain it, along with its cemetery.

    i was christened in this church. my family is buried in the cemetery, including my grt, grt, grandfather who fought in the war between the states. the church is just as it was built. no restroom, no water. it no longer belongs to the methodist association.
