Little Church near Cullers Run

St. John's Lutheran Church

  • Near Mathias, WV on Cullers Run Road
  • Erected in 1901, Restored 2001

According to the 2008 Heritage Weekend site, "Founders included many family names still common today: Delaunter, Dove, Fauley, Jenkins, Loury, May, Moyers, Sherman, Souder, Sours, Stultz, Ketterman, Loy, Strawderman and Wilkins." Eventually the church lost its congregation to larger churches and closed its doors in 1961. It was sold to a farmer who used it to store hay.

In 2000, it was purchased and fixed up. The interior is now used as a woodworking shop.
