Marker Text Organized 1856 by the Rev. C. A. Grote, first minister to preach here. First building was erected in 1858; second one, of stone, in 1875. The present structure was built 1890 on land donated by Ernst Jordan, Sr., charter member. Until 1927, all worship was held in the German language. The two Methodist churches in Art united in 1939. At that time frame building was moved beside this rock building and equipped for Sunday School classes. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, 1968
