Ocracoke Methodist Episcopal Church

As mentioned yesterday, a congregation of the Methodist Episcopal Church (Ocracokers called this the "Northern Church") was established on the island in 1883. Wesley Chapel, constructed in part from timbers salvaged from a shipwreck, was built on the Back Road (where Zillie's is located today).
