United Methodists Historic Site Dedication

The 2014 Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church named the Thomas Amis House as Historic Site No. 498, where Bishop Francis Asbury stayed on his journey preaching the gospel to groups of Christians in the area.   On the 225th anniversary of Asbury’s stay at the Amis House, a Dedication was held and a plaque presented by Bishop Mary Virginia Taylor.

The Dedication Day festivities included re-enactors Bishop Asbury and Richard Whatcoat, along with a Colonial Encampment with re-enactors and Stonewolf, a full-blood Cherokee.

Here are some photos from the day’s events.  Enjoy!
