History of Jamison

Methodist Church

Church history began when William Green donated land from his farm for a cemetery and gave money to build the first church in 1892. The church was located along Ohio Street at the top of a hill. As was true in other cases, the churches of that era had a definite impact on the cultural and social life of the region. In addition to worship services, there was a large Sunday School and Epworth League. Christmas programs, celebrations of anniversaries and weddings, amateur theatrical programs, homecoming events and church picnics all drew large crowds.

Over the years families moved away and in 1970 the church building was bought by Dwight Green who tore it down. The cemetery remains.
