Greenwood Methodist Church & Cemetery - Energy PA

Text Coming Soon!


In 1857-58 a series of revival meeting were held in a grove near what became the village of Energy in Shenango Township. Before too long the Greenwood Methodist congregation was organized and initial services were held in the nearby Warnock School. A wooden frame church was erected in 1860 on land donated by William Harbison and the first pastor was a traveling circuit preacher named John McComb. The church, which also established a cemetery, was greatly improved in 1921 when a full basement and other amenities were added. The building was almost lost to a fire on Sunday, April 24, 1938, but local citizens rallied to fight the fire and save the church. Declining attendance saw the church close in June 1983, when the congregation was approaching its 126th anniversary. The church was later sold to a private owner and is still in use as a storage facility. The cemetery is currently cared for by the Eastbrook Methodist Church. (c1940) Full Size

  1. I’m curious if the pictures are of all the markers in the cemetery. I have ancestors buried there and am planning a trip north as soon as I get a chance. Do you know if the old records have been transferred to Eastbrook?

    Any information would be appreciated. Thank You!
