The Ozark First United Methodist Church has a following that dates back to before the Civil War. Prior to the current architectural structure, the Methodist's held service in a small framed church that they used up until the early 1900's. At this point in time the Civil War had passed, the First United Methodist Church was growing here in Ozark and its members felt it was time for a new church to be built. A new church was built in 1909 for a total of $13,500. Today the Ozark First United Methodist Church is still going strong and it is still as beautiful today as the day it was built. This remarkable and architecturally distinctive structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. With its crenellated towers, native cut sandstone and unique stained glass windows, this church is a landmark for all who pass through Ozark, Arkansas.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
