Church / Denomination: There were two churches on the site, both burned. The congregation then rebuilt further up toward the village center in 1884, Methodist

Established in 1781. First interment was Ann Dale Weldon, wife of John Weldon, whose family gave the land for the church and cemetery. The Weldons were Yorkshire settlers. Cemetery was fully restored in 2001 by inmates from Westmorland Institution. Much information was recovered from the headstones that had been thought lost. All the stones were cleaned, straightened and put on new bases. A complete documentation is available at Keillor House Museum in Dorchester.
