      From the church history sign:

      The church was formed as an Anglican Chapel in 1750 on South Hyco Creek. It was a widely recognized landmark in this frontier region and was known as "Chapel Church." Francis Asbury, one of two first Bishops of the Methodist church, preached here in 1781 during the Revolutionary War. The church passed to the Methodist after 1784.
      The church was the first organized church in what became Person County in 1792.
      Note: The church was in Granville County when formed in 1750 and was next in Orange County before being passed to Caswell County and became Person County in 1792.
