Historical Sketch

In 1822, Benjamin Jones preached the first Methodist sermon at a log cabin in Brick Chapel ( a small village north of Greencastle). In 1832, a larger log house was built by James Montgomery and friends and served as church and school. In 1835, a brick building was erected on the site where the church stands now and was dedicated as Montgomery Chapel, as Mr. Montgomery gave the land to build it. In 1872, a more modern and larger brick church was built. In 1894, it was agreed to drop the Montgomery name and the church become known as Brick Chapel M.E. Church. In 1955, an educational unit was built. The construction of a parsonage occurred in 1961. In January 1968 the church became Brick Chapel UMC by order of the Conference.
