About 1837 a Methodist Church was established near the present site of the Old Liberty Cemetery. It was called "Carolina" because most of the congregation emigrated from South Carolina. The little congregation first worshipped in a small log building and by the mid-1840s the church house was enlarged with a larger structure. After serving on denomination for several years, the Methodists sold the church to the Baptists about 1870. The Baptists renamed the church "Liberty" and worshipped there for the next 30 years until shortly after the turn of the last century when the members elected to abandon the old church and erect a new building in the city of Oneonta. The old building was torn down and lumber, doors, and pews were used to construct the Union Hill Baptist Church which was organized in 1903 with 40 members, some former members of Liberty. Some other former members of Liberty Church reorganized and became the nucleus of the First Baptist Church of Oneonta in 1904.
