City of Laurel Walking TourMethodists, who organized as a congregation in Laurel in 1840, established the First Church in Laurel in 1842. They occupied two other locations before this edifice was built in 1884. It was enlarged in 1909, 1950, 1962, and 2001. The church lost its original wooden steeple in 1977 due to deterioration. On August 16, 1979, a new steeple was hoisted and continues to serve as a beacon on main street.
