|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
From Gerrardstown, take Rt. 51 (Gerrardstown Rd.) west to Mills Gap straight across CR45 on to Buck Hill Rd. for about 2 miles to church on left.
A lot of land on Buck Ridge was transferred on December 15, 1884, to the trustees of the "United Brethern in Christ," under the control of the Virginia Conference, for a burying ground and for religious purposes only. The building of the first church was started soon after the land was acquired and finished by the early 1900's as a wooden structure with the cemetery adjacent. The United Brethren Church, as it was originally known, was part of the Jones Springs Charge of six churches.
In 1974 the church was burned down by the work of an arsonist and a brick church was rebuilt.
