|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This church and cemetery is located in rural Granville County, not in a town - but the mailing address is 190 Woodland Church Road, Wake Forest, Wake County, NC.

This church was organized in 1862 by Rev. Addison Purefoy and John Brewer, Jr. in a log schoolhouse about six miles west of Wake Forest. Sometime after 1866 a building was erected. Regular services were held in this building until it was torn down during the winter of 1887-88, moved and re-erected in Granville County near the Wake - Granville line. Newer buildings have since been erected.
