Saint Paul United Methodist Church built in 1853 was originally organized in 1849. The church stands on the site of the Old Academy building. The red brick structure is a Gothic Revival style with a slate roof. Its spire of 120 feet was the tallest of any church in the area until it was destroyed in by Hurricane Hazel in 1954. The damaged spire was removed but the remainder of the structure survived.
Over the years numerous additions and modifications have been made to the to the building. The entrance was relocated during one addition, and the congregational direction was shifted.
