Mullins United Methodist Church, named for its first
minister, the Reverend Lorenzo Dow Mullins, was established July 15, 1845,
in a one-room log structure on this site. Federal troops dismantled that
building in 1864 and used its timbers to construct Fort Hurst, located
northwest of the present-day intersection of Poplar Avenue and Erin Drive.
In 1876, with logs reclaimed from the fort, the church was rebuilt as a
one-room frame house. In 1897, a third church was built to replicate the
deteriorating frame and log structure. That building was replaced in 1947
by another copy of the 1876 edifice, which continues to serve as the Mullins
Chapel. Adajacent to the Chapel is the fifth sanctuary, which was dedicated
April 14, 1957.
