Originally founded in 1872, Scruggs Methodist Memorial Church moved to the corner of Cook and Spring in 1877.
The current Colonial Revival church was opened in 1929, and closed in 1998.
I just realized I remember the original steeple being extant until only recently. City permits reveal that it was most likely removed in 2016, for unknown reasons. It’s unfortunate it’s gone, as the overall composition of the building is now compromised.
