The Methodist Graveyard, corner of Chestnut and Cherry Streets, Chillicothe, Scioto Township, was leased to the Methodists about 1830 by Governor Thomas Worthington, for 99 years, renewable forever, being a part of a subdivision he had added to Chillicothe.
The old Methodist Meeting House, though altered into a livery stable, still stands on the N.E. corner of the alley between Paint & Walnut Streets. In 1848, the congregation amicably divided, one portion building the church on East Main Street, now known as Trinity United Methodist Church, the other portion of the congregation remaining in the old church until 1852, when they built the Walnut Street Methodist Episcopal Church (now Walnut Street United Methodist Church), selling the old meeting house to the congregation of St. Mary's Catholic Church. Both congregations continued using this burial ground until about 1890, when its neglected appearance led the citizens in the vicinity to have the city council declare the place a nuisance, and order it abandoned. Some of the graves in the burial ground were unmarked.
