SCOPE AND CONTENT: The collection contains records of the Emmanuel United Methodist Church and its predecessor Milburn Church from the late 19th century, including baptism and transfers of membership.(1 box) Last updated 09/08
BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: The Emmanuel United Methodist Church was founded in 1887 by the former member of Milburn Church. The Milburn Church, which was established in 1771, was partially destroyed during the Civil War, and its members decided to build a new church rather than repair the old one. Beginning as a one building, Emmanuel United Methodist Church was expanded in 1936, 1957, and 1986.
