Plaque Text

This church, formerly known as the "Old Chapel", was built on land donated by Stephen Conger, a Loyalist from New Jersey, who had settled with his family in Hallowell Township in 1787. Commenced in 1809, it was the first Methodist church in Prince Edward County and one of the earliest in Upper Canada. Built by William Moore and financed by local subscription, it has been maintained as a place of worship for a longer period than any other church of Methodist origin in Ontario.

This church has a mention in a book called, "Early Ontario Gravestones". Apparently, the adjoining cemetery has no markers dating later than about 1886.
