Text on MarkerThough area Methodists met as early as 1847, this church was not formally organized until 1854. Itinerant preachers of the Cameron-Port Sullivan-Maysfield circuit served the congregation, which met in a school building. In 1885, a separate Maysfield circuit was organized, and the Rev. William G. Nelms was appointed pastor. A sanctuary was built in 1897 and stood at this site until destroyed by fire in 1933. The congregation met in the Presbyterian Church until 1952, when the present structure was donated and moved here from Ben Arnold, Texas. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986
