Trinity United Brethren Cemetery

Location:

McKee's Rd., McKee's Half Falls, Chapman Township

History:

"The Trinity Church ... was erected in 1860 as a union church for the use of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ and of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1885 the church came into the exclusive use of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. The building [was] a large two-story brick structure with a cupola that originally contained a bell. When the church was abandoned as a place of worship about the turn of the century, the bell was removed and was placed on the steeple of the Paradise Church. There is an old cemetery adjoining the west side of the church building that has long since been abandoned." Dunkelberger, p. 650.
