Significance: The significance of the Central Mine Methodist Episcopal Church is primarily historical. The church was built and supported totally by the mining community at Central, primarily the Cornishmen. Although it was never affiliated with a Methodist conference, the church played an active role in the Methodist community from 1869 until the abandonment of the mines. Ever since the dispersal of the Central miners to various parts of the United States, the church has been the scene of annual reunions of residents of Central. The church stands as a reminder of the close-knit community at Central.
