The churchyard came into use for burials during the 1840s. When Pastor G. W. Rabb was dying in 1851, he requested burial beneath the altar of the frame church then being built to replace the log cabin.

His grave and a monument commemorating pioneer circuit riders now (1976) mark the original Methodist Church site.

The church and the nearby parsonage, which is said to have been the first Methodist parsonage built in Texas, were relocated in 1908.
