Maysfield First United Methodist Church
Though area Methodists met as early as 1847, this
church was not formally organized until 1854.
Itinerant preachers of the Cameron-Port Sullivan-
Maysfield circuit served the congregation, which met
in a school building. In 1885, a separate Maysfield
circuit was organized, and the Rev. William G. Nelms
was appointed pastor. A sanctuary was built in 1897
and stood at this site until destroyed by fire in
1933. The congregation met in the Presbyterian Church
until 1952, when the present structure was donated
and moved here from Ben Arnold, Texas. Texas
