~~~ Past & Present ~~~
* Methodist Episcopal Society
Organized at Garoga Lake in October, 1842, by Stephen Parks, then of Gloversville. John Mead was chosen its first class-leader. In 1843 S. M. Foster, one of the first members of this society, became a licensed exhorter, and in that capacity served the congregation until 1850, when he was granted authority by the conference to preach, and has since sustained the relation of pastor.
In 1872 this society erected a church edifice at Wheelerville, which was dedicated the same year by Rev. D. C. Dayton. It is a frame building in the gothic style and 27 by 51 feet in size.
