ABANDONED CHURCHES in HOLSTON CONFERENCE

It seems that The Methodist Episcopal Church required that abandonment and sale of church property be reported to the Annual Conference; it seems that in The Methodist Episcopal Church, South, churches were abandoned at District Conference. Mainly for this reason this report begins with 1939.

Holston Conference Archives has a complete set of United Brethren and Evangelical United Brethren Churches. But no one in Holston Conference has a complete set of journals of the East Tennessee Conference of the ME and Methodist Church.


Where there are two journal dates given, the first year is probably the year the church was closed, and the second year is probably the year the property was disposed of. If there are questions, the journals should be consulted.

Information on founding dates of churches comes from Church Founding and Closing Dates in Holston Conference by Walter Hendricks, 1996, based on information in the Holston Conference Archives (not very many); from histories of the Abingdon and Knoxville Districts by Roy L. Howard; from The History of the Chattanooga District by C. Stephen Byrum and the Supplement by Roy L. Howard; and by other research by Roy L. Howard. An “o” in that column means the information is not immediately available. An “ A ” means that the information might be in the Archives in connection with another church. The date shown in some cases refers to a previous name of the same entity.

Where a single digit appears instead of the year of a Conference Journal, it refers to one of the following sources:

1 History of the Abingdon District, by Roy L. Howard

2 History of the Chattanooga District by C. Stephen Byrum

3 Supplement to the History of the Chattanooga District by Roy L. Howard

4 History of the Knoxville District by Roy L. Howard

5 Studies of Cleveland District churches (except Rhea County) by Roy L. Howard (hoped to be published in 2001 or 2002)

Research in Bradley County by Mitchell Kinder and Bob George. Some information on McMinn County by Rev. Ogle Wattenbarger.

The column “Year Last Listed” indicates the last year a journal reported activity from that congregation (In some cases a church was listed in the report that there was no average attendance; that is not the year given in this column) If there is no date in the column, it intimates that the congregation merged immediately in the year the information was in the journal.

Churches named “First” are listed in the “F” section alphabetically, with the name of the town following the word “First.” The same is true of churches named “Trinity,” etc.

When two churches merged and the merged church has the name of one of the former churches, only the one not in the new name is listed.

Some areas are in a different district in 2000 than when the church closed.

There is a separate list for renamed churches



There might be several reasons that a church’s name is not in the list below:

1.The property did not belong to the Conference: the property might have been used rent-free. An example is the congregation listed as “Patten” in the Chattanooga District in 1940-43. The pastor of Ebenezer and Wesley in South Pittsburg held services on Sunday afternoons in the Patton (sic) School on a mountain above South Pittsburg. Methodists never had any ownership of the location. Many churches simply disappear from the appointment list. While that sometimes may have occurred as a result of carelessness, most of them were probably in situations where the property was not owned by the Methodist church or by the Conference.

2. The deed might have had a reversionary clause, stating that the property had to be returned to the donors or their heirs if it ceased to be used for worship. (In some cases, the Journal takes note of this.)

3.The property might have been shared by other groups. This occurred in many cases. In some cases the deed stated that any religious group might use the property for worship, so Methodists had no ownership.

4.The disposition of the property may have not been reported to the Annual Conference.

5. The property might never have been transferred to any other owner (it continued to be church property). An example is Mt. Tabor in McMinn County, which closed about 1953 and was not officially abandoned until 1989.)

6. I have tried to make this list as complete and accurate as possible. But human error is inevitable, and I apologize for any errors. - Roy L. Howard

members of Boyd were removed to Ratliff, and the former Ratliff Church became called Boyd-Ratliff.

Boyd-Ratliff Buchanan VA Tz 1996 UMC 288 1999

(In the 1983 journal, the three-point Prater Circuit, which had included Boyd-Ratliff, Coleman’s Chapel, and Looney’s Chapel, was discontinued, and a two-point charge called Coleman’s- Boyd was created. In all subsequent journals the church was listed only as “Boyd,” not to be confused with Boyd’s Chapel on the Bishop Circuit or the Amonate Circuit, also in the Tazewell District.

Beginning in 1983 Boyd-Ratliff was not listed in the journal; Boyd was listed on a two-point circuit with Coleman’s Chapel; the circuit was called “Coleman-Boyd.” Although permission was given at the 1996 session of the Annual Conference to sell the property, Sunday School and occasional worship services have been held and reported in Conference journals.)
