Methodist Episcopal Church, Buffalo Mills, Harrison Twp.

History: A Methodist Episcopal class was organized at Buffalo Mills in 1869 by Rev. Decker. George W. Horn was the first class-leader. The erection of a church was commenced in 1869, and the building was finished and dedicated the following year. The church is a part of the Schellsburg charge, and is in a flourishing condition.

In the fall of 1872 Rev. J. H. Johnson held a series of revival meetings, which resulted in the formation of a Methodist Episcopal society at Mannís Choice. From that time the place became a regular appointment, and meetings were held at the Nycum schoolhouse. In 1882 a neat frame church was erected at Mannís Choice, at a cost of sixteen hundred dollars. The society numbers about thirty members, and forms a part of the Schellsburg charge.
