Biographical or historical data
The movement behind the establishment of Claremont United Methodist Church began in 1883 when J. Frank Mancha and his wife, Lillie, deeded land for the construction of a church. The present church, however, stands on additional land that the Manchas deeded in 1886. The church was part of the Salisbury District of the Wilmington Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church until 1931, when it became associated with the Methodist Protestant Church. In 1939, when the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and the Methodist Protestant Church united, Claremont Church became part of the Claremont Circuit of the Petersburg District of the Virginia Conference.
