Buckhead United Methodist Church was founded in 1824 on land owned by Daniel G. Gunn. In 1884, the original log church building was replaced with a new structure. When this building burned in 1914, it was replaced with a red brick church building. The church was closed in 2004 after a vote by a called church conference.
