The church was founded and built in about 1880 as one of two successors to the former Cave Spring Methodist Church, which had been built in the 1840s or 1850s. The Cave Spring church closed and its congregation was divided to form new churches in Farmington and Verona. After the Cave Spring Church was torn down, some of its materials were recovered for use in the new Verona church. The pews and bell from the Cave Spring church were installed in the Verona church. A wooden cross that hangs in the Verona church was made from the cedar door-steps of the Cave Spring church.
For many years, the church shared a pastor with the Berlin, Caney Spring, and Farmington United Methodist churches. The Farmington church was administratively separated from the others in 2003. The Verona United Methodist church closed in 2011.
