Est. 1785

Isaac Denton deeded a 99'x 165' plot of land here in 1790 for the construction of a 20'x 30' Methodist meeting house. The congregation was formed in 1785 by the Rev. Philip Cox, who rode a 300-mile to serve his many Long Island congregations.

A new church was erected in 1825. It was destroyed by fire in 1897 and was rebuilt. It burned again in 1912 and was rebuilt again on Denton Avenue, Lynbrook.
