First Methodist Church of Guntersville

Religious Structure
John Dersham

Guntersville First United Methodist Church was organized in 1822 with 33 Cherokee Native Americans ministered by circuit rider, Richard Neely. The first building was built in 1869 on the present site and was the home of the first organized religious group in the area.

The church is part of the North Alabama Hallelujah Trail of Sacred Places, a driving tour of 32 churches that are at least 100 years old, stand on their original sites, still hold services and are accessible to the public. For more information, visit
