Biographical or historical data
St. Paul's United Brethren Church began in 1887 as the "Staunton Mission Station" of a denomination which had been influential in Augusta County since the 1790's. Rev. J. W. Howe, the first pastor, had served Shenandoah Valley churches and organized new ones since his appointment in to the United Brethren Augusta Circuit in 1858. The first building was located on South Lewis Street. In 1903, the property was sold and the church acquired a new location at the corner of Washington and Beverley Streets. The new church was remodeled in the 1940's, and again in 1964, during the pastorate of Dr. John R. Sawyer, who served the church for 38 years. In 1968, the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church merged. Today it is known as St. Paul's United Methodist Church and is located on Shutterlee Mill Road.
