Industry Methodist Church

Organized 1847 by the Rev. Henry Bauer, missionary to the German settlers. In 1867, this building was erected under the leadership of the pastor, the Rev. Karl Biel. This was an era of financial difficulty, and the funds were raised only by very great sacrifices on the part of the people. Men of congregation did the construction work.

The Rev. A. M. Roos was pastor of the 100th anniversary.
Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, 1967
