Annual Conference Archive

Willow Street Station official register of pastors, members, deaths, baptisms, and marriages, Sherman, Texas, 1887–1897.

When a United Methodist Church closes, its business and historical records are conveyed to the Annual Conference archive for preservation. Shown are materials from Key Memorial United Methodist Church of Sherman, Texas, which closed in 2015. The church was organized as a preaching point of the Sherman Circuit in 1880. The name Willow Street Station was adopted in 1893. Ten years later, in 1903, the charge was renamed in honor of Southern Methodist Bishop Joseph Staunton Key (1829–1920).
