White Plains United Methodist Church, 1871, Greene County

This historic congregation dates to around 1817. It isn’t known when the first church building was constructed. Like White Plains Baptist, the Methodist church was very progressive in allowing African-Americans to attend after the Civil War, albeit with segregated services. The congregation is inactive today, but the owners of the church have plans to restore it.
