Bishop Francis Asbury, builder of Methodism in America, recorded nine visits to this place. The farm, called "Wild Cat," belonged to Shadrick Turner, planter. He and his wife Sarah, zealous laymen, hosted many meetings. Several United Methodist churches of Prince Georges's County stem from this early preaching.

Nearby is the Turner family graveyard, the only remains of "Wild Cat." In 1941 the property was deeded to the City of Greenbelt to be a part of the City Cemetery.
