Photo of Church

“Cedar Neck Methodist Church (M. E.) is located four miles east of Milford on the road to Fort Saulsbury. The first church was built at an early date. A new church was dedicated on Nov. 6, 1859, by the Rev. A. Manship at the 10 o’clock service. In February, 1875, the building was burned so badly that a new church was erected during that year and it is still in use. On Feb. 5, 1913, Theodore W. Shockley donated land to the church. In 1919, major improvements were made, including a new roof. There is an enclosed graveyard beside the church, the tombstones dating back to Dec. 21, 1875.” (1)
