The Oro African Methodist Episcopal Church, built in 1846-49, is a designated National Historic Site. It is one of the oldest African log churches still standing in North America. This church stands as a testament to both the Black settlers who carefully maintained it for nearly 75 years and the passionate community volunteers who have worked diligently to preserve it.
