The story of a forgotten America.

Cleveland United Methodist Memorial Church

Cleveland United Methodist Memorial Church served rural Webster County, West Virginia for one hundred years.

The original Cleveland United Methodist Church building was constructed in 1892 2 and rebuilt in 1925 by Jack Hoover of Cowen and Charley Henderson of Upper Glade. 1 2 Because of declining membership and dwindling finances, the church was closed for regular worship and made into a memorial church, serving the community for funerals, special events, and for an annual homecoming held each August. 1
