ROPER, N.C. (WNCT) — There’s a small church with a big history in Washington County.
For nearly 170 years, Rehoboth Methodist Church has stood just outside Roper. The small, one-room church has been in the need of some tender loving care.
That’s where Chris Barber steps in.
“This is part of an area of the state that is the cradle of North Carolina,” said Barber, who represents Rehoboth Church Preservation Society. “We need to remember where we came from, which is what stimulated my curiosity in this place, because it tells a lot of stories.”
