English Chapel was constructed outside of Brevard in 1860 by the Reverend A. F. English. The Reverend built the church because he disagreed with the Southern Methodist Episcopal Church's stance on slavery. The church remains today but has gone through some hard times. At one time English Chapel served over forty mountain families. However, this number declined greatly after much of the area became part of the Pisgah National Forest. Since then, membership at the church as dwindled. English Chapel is now served by Reverend Chris Fitzgerald, who splits his time with two other Methodist churches. Attendance swells during the summer months as campers and hikers visit services.
