|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
A Methodist Church was built here in 1903 and named in honor of John Wesley, founder of Methodism. In 1913 a two room schoolhouse was erected to replace an earlier one room structure.
The School was consolidated with Latexo in 1949. Both the school and Church buildings were destroyed by a tornado in 1953.
An adjacent cemetery dates to the 1880's, with the earliest marked graves from 1885. Although regular worship services had ended by 1949, the Chapel was rebuilt after the tornado and serves as a gathering place for the cemetery association.
