The Emory United Methodist Church facing the square denotes the English culture of the village. It is a provincial mix of Victorian and incipient Richardsonian Romanesque, and its late date, 1886, attests to the conservatism of the Methodist congregation. A comparison with the up-to-date styling of the Hafer house (AD2) in nearby Abbottstown is instructive.
