Branch Mountain United Methodist Church

-A A +A
Late 19th century. Northwest side of Hampshire County 5, .3 mile south of the intersection with Hampshire County 5/4 (Three Churches Hollow Rd.)

Architecturally the most ambitious of the three churches, this frame building, now clad in artificial siding, has a spired corner tower. The rudimentary Gothic Revival details include triangular-headed windows and doors. Like its Baptist counterpart, Branch Mountain Church has an adjoining cemetery.
