First United Methodist Church

The Salado Methodist Church Pocket Garden, maintained by the Garden Guild, enhances the beauty of the historic Carpenter Gothic Sanctuary built in 1890. The chapel was built with lumber hauled by wagon from Austin at the corner of Church and Thomas Arnold Streets where it remained until its move to Royal St. in 2005.

This move was shown on the History Channel on their program, "Mega Movers". The Historic Sanctuary has received markers from the Texas Historical Commission, the National Register of Historic Places, and the Methodist Church and it is now used by the 900-member congregation as a Chapel for weddings and small services. The garden is maintained by the SUMC Garden Guild.
