Welcome to the Wolcott United Methodist Church

Historic Site Marker

As far as can be determined, the WUMC is the only white United Methodist church in the country to be organized by an African American - the Rev. George S. Brown - in 1855.  It was designated an official Historic Site of the UMC in 2008.

Sketch of the Rev. George S. Brown

This is a sketch (the only image that has been identified to date) of the Rev. George S. Brown, drawn by Henry Mack of Hardwick (who was probably about 13/14 years old at the time.)  You can view a video about Rev. Brown's ministry at http://www.mychamplainvalley.com/news/hidden-history-reverend-george-s-brown/648629943.

Vermont Historic Roadside Marker

In 2010 a State of Vermont Historic Roadside Marker was installed to honor the Rev. George S. Brown.
