Embreeville United Methodist Church

Before 1900 to Present 


4026 Highway 81 S, Jonesborough, TN 37659


The church was organized before 1900 and affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The first building was in Old Embreeville on the road that runs along the river on property belonging to the Embree Iron Company. The Company built the present building and used it as a community center as well as a church. A deed for the church property was not acquired until 1942 when the Embree Iron Company began selling all of their property in Embreeville. P.E. Watson, E.C. Cline and Mrs. L.L. Renfro were the trustees and the property was acquired for $1.00. The first bell is still being used.

 The church has belonged to the Speedwell Circuit, Nolichuckey Circuit, Bethesda-Eden-Embreeville Circuit.
