First Methodist Episcopal Church of Avon, also known as Avon United Methodist Church, is a historic Methodist Episcopal church located at Avon in Livingston County, New York. It was designed by Rochester architect James Goold Cutler and built in 1879. It is a three- by five-bay Romanesque style brick building. The principal elevation is flanked by an engaged tower at the south end and low pavilion and chimney on the north. The center of the principal elevation is accented by a large recessed round arch at the upper level that contains a large center oculus window flanked by two small vertical windows.[2]
