Description

According to a history of Monticello United Methodist Church, the building was constructed in 1861 by Jacob Bookman. The church is significant as a very intact example of a mid-19th century rural church building. The interior retains the original pews as well as the former slave gallery along three wall elevations. The church is a one-story, front-gable-roofed, weather-boarded frame building in the Greek Revival style with a meeting house floor plan. The façade end of the gable is pedimented with a boxed cornice, plain frieze, and has a semicircular vent in the gable. The portico is supported by octagonal wooden columns on a stepped brick entrance. The façade has three entrance doors topped by Gothic Revival inspired pointed-arched, modern stained-glass transom windows. The central entrance also has modern stained-glass sidelights above wooden panels. The side elevations have multi-light, shuttered windows. There is a cemetery to the left of the church.
