Tioga United Methodist Church


Services began in homes of the Shiloh community, two miles to the east of here in 1897. The worshippers organized the Shiloh Methodist Church with the Rev. Mr. Allen as pastor. After Tioga was founded, the congregation moved here and erected original building on this site in1893. Additional rooms and facilities have since been added to the central structure. This church has faithfully served Tioga. One of its members, Olan R. Van Zandt, was a representative, then senator, in the Texas Legislature for 16 years, 1926-1942.
