1897,71  purchase noted
     1918,39  permission to sell

Brief History:
      The church building was erected by the Clinton (Sugar Valley) charge of the Evangelical Association.  Conference records refer to the appointment as Nippenose, but some local records use the name St. Elizabeth.  In 1871 it was placed on the newly-formed Jersey Shore charge.  In 1897 the property was sold to the Methodist Episcopal Church for $100, the money to be used for the Jersey Shore Trinity UEV parsonage debt.  The Methodists placed the church on the Jamestown (later Oriole and Antes Fort) charge and used the name Elizabeth for the appointment.  It appears to have become inactive about 1906.

Final disposition:
     The church site along the road is now empty, and the precise location of the building cannot be determined.  The cemetery at the top of the hill still exists, but it is not maintained.
