In 1786, settlers Timothy Acuff and his wife donated this land for the first Methodist meeting house west of the Appalachian Mountains, built with the help of fellow settlers who were committed to the spread of Methodism on the frontier. With the nearest church and school 100 miles away, the chapel also served as a school for 75 years. One of the first two Methodist bishops of the U.S., Francis Asbury, preached here several times. The site is a Heritage Landmark of the United Methodist Church.
