First United Methodist Church
Follow the blue arrows on the signs as you walk
The large stone church on the corner was built in 1892 after a fire destroyed the congregation’s 1888 house of worship. This is the home of Massillon’s oldest congregation. The 135-foot tower of this National Register building houses the “Town Clock.” A gift from the citizens of Massillon, townspeople raised funds after the fire to replace the four clocks in the original steeple.
If the sign on the back door, right next to Third Street, says the Massillon Railroad Club’s train display is open, it would be worth your time to stop in. It’s free and fun!
Directions: Turn right and walk down the hill on Third Street Southeast, stopping at the corner of Tremont Avenue.
