Shiloh United Methodist Church and Cemetery - In 1845 Edwin and Martha Harry gave a one-acre site for the church. The name came from the Bible. The congregation used a log building until a frame one was built in 1870. It was replaced in 1912 by a frame structure that burned in the 1990s. It was still active in 1954. James W. Rozelle's child was the first burial in the cemetery in 1850. Shiloh Church Restoration Association formed on May 21, 1973, they own the cemetery. Texas Historical Commission Marker
