Bastrop: First United Methodist Church

Established in 1835, the First United Methodist Church constructed a wooden church in 1851 on the site of the current Church parsonage. In 1924, a new church was constructed using many elements of the original, including furniture, communion rail, pews and Venetian stained glass windows. The present church was completed in 1925 and, the same year, the congregation received a pipe organ as a gift.
