Company description
In the month of Ma rch in 1875 Rev John E. Cullom and Rev Mansford held a revival in the Port Jackson school house. From that revival came the formation of our church. After Rev Mansford delivered the first sermon He then became ill and could not continue. Rev Cullom finished the revival and became the founder of our church. The revival resulted in forty conversions and ten were added by relations, making a total of 50 persons, enough to organize a class. The newly organized church made it's home in the school house until 1880 when this Oak Ridge School House was built about a mile east of the Port Jackson School House.
The church was then moved to meet in the Oak Ridge School house. In 1894, they built their own church building in the location where it is now. In July of 1894 Dr. Cranston of Cincinnati delivered the dedicatory sermon. Rev Boatman was the pastor at the time the church was on the New Hebron Circuit and was named Boatman Chapel. For a few years the name of the church was Boatman Chapel.
It was then called by three names; Oak Ridge Chapel, Port Jackson Church and or Boatman Chapel. The name Boatman didn't last long, but Port Jackson and Oak Ridge Church are still used today. However only a few old timers are left and the Port Jackson is about to die out. The name of the church has changed many times. It began as Oak Ridge Methodist Episcopal Church, then the Oak Ridge Methodist Church and now is the Oak Ridge United Methodist Church. We are now on the Oak Ridge, Pearl Chapel Circuit.
