History Lookout Chapel Methodist Church On September 30, 1869, James Painter and Susan Painter one part and Alexander Painter, Adam Lowery, James Lowery, David Dean and James L. Gardner Trustees in Trust gave 1 acre of ground for a Church and graveyard. The Trustees of free public schools and citizens of the neighborhood were to have the right to use the church building for school purposes so long as it did not interfere with church privileges. The graveyard was to be free for all who wished to be buried there. Reverend James A. Neely was pastor from April 1873, until October 11, 1889, and 26 new members were added to the membership by baptism. Mr. Edger Ellis later to be instrumental in forming St. Paul Methodist in Fort Payne was received by baptism on October 11, 1889. Mrs. Mary E. Ellis, wife of Edger Ellis was received by profession of faith on October 25, 1891 by Reverend John W. Norton. Mr. James Oscar Crow and wife, another prominent couple were received into the church on August 13, 1893 by Pastor Reverend Rufus Nicholson. The Church was a two story building with school being conducted on the second floor. The Odd Fellows also held meetings on the 2nd floor. Pastor Reverend Will Eldod served as both pastor and school teacher at one time. The Church was also served at one time by Joe Wheeler Cook. In 1962 members, friends and neighbors joined together in remodeling the old structure. The second story was removed and a new roof put on. New siding was added, new windows, floors, doors and a pulpit were also included in the remodeling. The Church membership has been smaller since 1939 but there are still services at the Church on the second and fourth Sundays. The current membership and friends are faithful and many wonderful spiritual services are still held in the Church. The Church has been served the last seven years by James Russell of Fort Payne. This history and register was from Sarah Painter Moon’s papers in the possession of Vincent Denardi. Picture and information contributed by Ronnie Warren.
