Bartholomew Methodist Church (Morehouse Parish, La.)
Bartholomew Methodist Church (Morehouse Parish, La.) traces its origins to the 1790s. The congregation had a long-standing connection to the community’s Masons. The two organizations shared a building until 1899, when the Bartholomew Lodge surrendered their charter. In 1853, the Bartholomew congregation and the masons dedicated a new building, which is recognized as one of the oldest United Methodist churches in Louisiana. In 1986, the church was designated a United Methodist Historic Site.
