As the country expanded westward during the nineteenth century, Methodism expanded with it. When settlers crossed the Platte River into the area that is now Wahoo and Saunders County, the Methodists were there to meet them.
In 1872, our church officially formed, with a Methodist minister preaching in Wahoo every two weeks. In 1880, a plot of land was purchased at 7th and Beech Streets (still our location today!) and our first building was built (seen at left).
In 1923, our current building was built. In 1968, when the Methodist Church merged with the Evangelical United Brethren and became The United Methodist Church, we officially became Wahoo First United Methodist Church.
Our church has a rich history and a bright future. Be on the lookout for our 150th anniversary celebration in 2022, and the centenary of our building in 2023!
