The first Flint Hill Methodist Church was erected about 1831. This church, originally known as Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church, was used for worship until the fall of 1854, when the church burned. Some former members had a new Wesley Church erected in Maryland, and so when new brick church was erected at Flint Hill in 1860-1861, it took the name Flint Hill.

The church was used until 1901, when membership moved to Kemblesville. It was reopened in 1904 as a Sunday School, and was eventually reconsecrated as a church in 1913. Membership was never large and attendance sparse. Though the church survived until 1956, it was soon closed and abandoned. The building burned in the 1960s.

As it should so happen, before the fire, the church records were moved to the Kempblesville United Methodist Church. This church however suffered its own serious fire, and the records of Flint Hill, including the burial records, were lost. Today, the cemetery is maintained by the Kemblesville U.M. Church.
