Marker Text Organized in 1890 by I. N. Reeves, the Carbon Methodist Church met in the section house of the Texas Central Railroad and a mercantile store until a sanctuary was erected in 1914. This structure was rebuilt in the 1920s after a fire. The building is an important example of the Craftsman style of architecture. Features include a corner entrance, decorative window details, and bracketed eaves. The church disbanded in 1991. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1996
