Short BIO: In the 1830s the Ebenezer Methodist Episcpol Church was established in Neersville, roughly 1/2 mile South-East of the present church. The desire for a more accessable location caused the purchase of the current property in the early 1890s. In 1896-1897 construction was completed of the new church, which still stands today. At some point after it move, the church became United Methodist. The church is a beautiful one-room structure. Another stone structure is on the property known as the Waters Schoolhouse. It pre-dates the church and is used for Sunday school. The cemetery is located to the left of the church as is fairly well kept.
