Where Methodism Obtained Its Start

Record #:
Pilmoor Memorial Methodist Church, founded in 1928, at Currituck Courthouse was erected as a memorial to Reverend Joseph Pilmore. He was the first minister of the Methodist Church to preach in North Carolina. Sent to America in 1769 by the Conference of England, Pilmore preached his first sermon three hundred yards from the church site on September 28, 1772.
