Wesley United Methodist Church

28

503 High Street

Followers of John Wesley established a church in Morgantown in the early 1800s. After their original house of worship was destroyed by fire and the congregation outgrew its location on Pleasant Street, this church was built on a lot donated by I.C. White and his wife. The construction of this Gothic Revival style church was funded by community member donations, ranging from $1 to a 7,500 pound chime of bells.
