Historical Sketch

Located in Clay County, Indiana, the small congregation met for about eight years in the home of Robert Bennett. However, by 1858 they moved their meetings to the Center School House to accomodate larger congregations. In 1865 the Center Church was built 1 1/2 miles northeast of Cory. A Sunday School was organized in 1878. After the railroad through Cory was completed and it became a thriving community, a frame church building was constructed in Cory on the present site in 1879, and remodeled completely in 1908. The first parsonage was built in 1880 and the present one in 1956. Cory United Methodist Church closed in 2006.
