Cedarville Methodist Episcopal Church
Cedarville, Cumberland County
meetinghouse has a classical look because of the prominent pediment
and pilasters, but the double brackets are an Italianate influence
common throughout the state just after the Civil War. It was built
in 1868 and sits across the street from the Presbyterian church.
Cedarville is not a large town, but there are also Baptist and Episcopal
churches in town.
It is one of relatively few old Methodist churches
in the southern part of the state that have retained the original wooden clapboards.
The congregation is to be commended for the excellent condition of the building.
