Brushie Prairie Methodist Church

Organized south of Frost in 1874 this fellowship grew from earlier meetings conducted in a log school house. Originally known as Post Oak Methodist Church, it was chartered with thirty-five members under the leadership of the Rev. John J. Farmer. Brothers J. M., W. D., and E. W. Johnson, and F. M. Johnson gave the land in 1893 where the present structure stands. In 1914 the church was renamed Brushie Prairie. In 1952 the Mt. Zion Methodists joined the congregation. After 90 years the church disbanded in June 1964. An annual home coming is held here each June.
