The sanctuary is the oldest in continuous use in the county.

Salem shares a rich history dating back before the American Revolution when the Anglican reform movement called Methodism was just beginning.

The site of the present church is a short distance from the site of the Broken Back Meeting House, a crucial location in American Methodism commemorated with a stone marker on Rt. Salem was a continuation of that church body, as records indicate that the names of members were the same.

Before the sanctuary was built, worship services were held at a camp meeting ground called Enon, located near the old Broken Back Meeting House on land owned by the Flanagan family.

The church now sits on five acres of land originally donated by the Timberlake family.

The sanctuary is typical of 19th century construction: weather-boarded and rectangular with two doors in the gabled front–one for men and one for women. In more recent years, Sunday School rooms have been added as well as central heat and air conditioning.

In 1881, the building was enlarged by adding the present chancel area. Salem was a mission station until it became self-supporting under the Rev. In 1986, Wesley and Sally Haden constructed the entrance portico in memory of their daughter, Barbara Haden Vick.

In 2005, the Fellowship Hall was added, also thanks to the Hadens’ generosity.

We hold to the tradition that emphasizes God's love and mercy to all His children. The existing structure was built in 1946 with the Educational Building being consecrated in December 1961.

Here is the place for you to discover your spiritual nature, deepen your prayer life and contemplate your place in God's family. In 1997, more renovations were done: an addition with an elevator, handicapped restrooms and an expanded parking lot.

1869 and November 3, 1871 deeds were drawn and land granted to Locust Chapel, for a house of worship.
