The organizational meeting for this church was held in 1875 in the Pecan Grove community just west of Whitney. The Reverend I. M. Reeve, a circuit rider, led the congregation in its formation. In 1880, one year after the town of Whitney was founded on the rail line, the fellowship built a sanctuary here and became known as the Whitney Methodist Church. The name King Memorial was chosen in 1901 to honor Captain Newton J. King, an area pioneer and early church member. Over the years, the congregation has provided significant service and leadership to the town.
