Description and history
Sherrill United Methodist Church, at 118 West Main Street (on Highway 15 North 15 miles from Pine Bluff) in Sherrill, is a single story, wood-frame structure built 1909-1910 in a design reflecting the Craftsman and Gothic Revival styles of architecture.
“By 1909, the congregation had outgrown the home it had occupied since 1895,” the National Register nomination committee says. “Under the leadership of the late Reverend Frank Rogers, ground was broken on the same site and construction of the present structure begun.”
“By 1926 the membership had once more outgrown its accommodations. The parsonage was dismantled and the salvaged materials were used to build an addition at the rear of the building. This addition contained the fellowship hall and Sunday School rooms.” - (article written and contributed by Reverend Bill Ferguson, Pastor Sherrill United Methodist it appeared in quoted the Pine Bluff Commercial June 2, 2002).
