Monumental United Methodist Church

450 Dinwiddie Street • (757) 397-1297

Monumental United Methodist Church was built in 1831, but it actually dates back to 1772 when Rev. Robert Williams, a Methodist minister and missionary preached here making it the oldest continuing Methodist congregation in the South and the third oldest in the nation. One of its most notable members was John Porter, the designer and builder of the CSS Virginia (formerly USS Merrimack).  It is a five-bay brick and stucco Victorian Gothic style church  featuring a 182 foot tall, two part central tower. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The congregation strives to honor their past and seeks to love God and their neighbors. All are welcome.
