Hollonville United Methodist Church, Circa 1880s, Pike County

According to a history compiled by Miss Addie Huckaby [24 July 1861-18 November 1953], compiled circa 1950, Hollonville United Methodist Church traces its origins to the Flat Rock Methodist Church. That congregation was established long before the Civil War as a camp meeting. She noted that her family joined Flat Rock Methodist in 1873 and recalled that some of the ministers of that time were Wesley Henson, David Nolan, T. S. L. Harwell, and Cadesman Pope. Miss Huckaby remembered the old church building at Flat Rock and that the congregation moved to the present location, in Hollonville, in the mid-1880s. The congregation was still known as Flat Rock at the time; I’m unsure when the name was changed.
