According to the church history provided through the Trinity United Methodist Parish website,, “in 1786, before our country had a president, Methodist Class Meeting took place in Middle Hope, New York. The Church was organized in 1788. Asbury Chapel, dedicated in 1822, was later sold. Another building, purchased in 1885, was dedicated Middle Hope Methodist Episcopal Church November 16, 1886. Fostertown folks attended Middle Hope services forming their own congregation in 1883. In 1834, Fostertown Methodist Episcopal Church was built and dedicated. In 1808 Meetings started in Rossville. In 1831, the Rossville Methodist Episcopal Church was dedicated. On December 29, 1975 Middle Hope, Fostertown and Rossville Churches united to become Trinity United Methodist Parish.” This old building  and cemetery are located at the intersection of Route 32 and East Road, near the borderline of Orange County and Ulster County in New York.
