History of Wheelers Church

A short history of this church is included in The Heritage of Person County, Volume I, article 98. "On Saturday July 3, 1791, the first services were held at Wheeleys Meeting House. This was an arm of Flat River Church, according to the 1792 minutes and separated from Flat River Church on September 8, 1792 and was then called the Upper South Hico Church.
