Collection Description

Administrative History

Underwood Memorial United Methodist Church was founded in 1915 as the Center Street Mission, a mission of Center Street Methodist Church. Under the guidance of the North Georgia Conference and Rev. M. L. Underwood, the official church building was erected in 1920 at 1671 Howell Mill Rd N.W. and was given the name Underwood Methodist Episcopal Church, for the pastor who led the establishment process. The church continued to grow and expand in the following decades with the addition of an annex and parsonage. Underwood Memorial merged with Tenth Street United Methodist Church in 2010, forming Tenth Street Underwood Memorial United Methodist Church.

Scope and Content Note

The collection spans the age of the church, although most of the materials are from the latter half of the twentieth century.
