History of Enon Church

Enon United Methodist Church has a rich history.  Located on Studley Road in Hanover County, the church was established on land donated by John Haw in 1837.  Early records indicate the church was part of a 13 church charge, serviced by a circuit rider.  The sanctuary in use today was built in 1880.  A major cavalry battle of the Civil War took place around the church in 1864.  Twenty-seven or more unknown Confederate soldiers are buried in the church yard.
