    Settlement of this area began in the 1830s. Black Jack Methodist Church was organized in 1871 and a sanctuary was built about four miles west of this site. The congregation moved here in 1886, and land for a new sanctuary and cemetery was given by Mrs. Sophronia Jane Warren. Trustees of the new church were Henry Lee Taylor, A. W. McKenzie, and Stephen Johnson. The first burial in the cemetery occurred in 1887. The church was also used as a community school until 1916. Regular church services were discontinued during the Great Depression.
