“Kirkwood Methodist Church (M.E.). In 1898, S. O. Gibbons, a local-preacher, held revival services at Kirkwood and was successful in gaining converts. On Feb. 2, 1899, R. T. Cann donated land upon which a church was built. The corner-stone was laid on May 28, 1899, by the Rev. I. L. Wood. The church was dedicated on Sept. 3, 1899, by the Rev. Dr. James Crowe. Music was furnished by the P.R.R. Y.M.C.A. choir of Wilmington.” (1)
