Historic Shady Grove Methodist Episcopal Church

In February 1999, the historic Shady Grove Methodist Episcopal Church building was added to the Alabama Register of Historic Landmarks.  The historic wooden church was constructed around 1892 in the Ruby community, just west of Logan, Alabama in Cullman County. The building stands today much as it did when it was completed.  There are no electric lights, indoor plumbing or running water.  Air conditioning is provided by opening tall windows. The church and adjoining cemetery were built on seven acres of land donated by Richard and Jane McCain in December 28, 1882.  Mr. McCain’s grandmother Sarah McCain was the first person buried in the Shady Grove Cemetery.  Like so many others who lived in the hill country of what was then Winston County, McCain served in the First Alabama (Union) Cavalry, United States Volunteers in the Civil War. This is McCain’s marker in the Shady Grove Cemetery In her Combing Cullman County, historian Margaret Jean Jones writes: The Shady Grove Methodist Episcopal Church was organized in the early 1870s with J. J. McKissick, W. H. Martin and J. C. Vickery as trustees.  On December 28, 1882, Richard McCain and his wife Jane, who had homesteaded 159 acres of land earlier that year, deeded seven acres of land for the church and cemetery. (Richard McCain’s grandmother, Susana McCain, had been the first to be buried on this property in 1876)....
