Records from Galilee are now located at Hollywood UMC.
Galilee was founded right after the Civil War by a group of ex-slaves and free blacks, many of whom had formerly been members of Mt. Zion M. E. Church, Laurel Grove. In 1877, a white Methodist member of Mt. Zion, Francis Graves, donated the land for the congregation which is still in use today as a cemetery. This congregation was on the Oakville Circuit, Washington Conference, Methodist Episcopal Church, until 1942, when it was placed on the St. Mary's Larger Parish. After World War II, attendance declined. On 12 June 1983, the 1912 Galilee Church was burned in a "service of triumph." The Conference integrated the congregation into Hollywood UMC and the trustees at Hollywood have taken over the responsibility of the property at Galilee.
Buried in the cemetery are a number of Union soldiers from the U. S.C. T. (United States Colored Troops)
