Janes [Methodist] Chapel
Mansfield Township, Warren County

Methodist Bishop Janes consecrated several churches in the region and had this one named for him. It was organized in 1848, and built sometime before 1874, as it appears on the Beers Atlas of the county in that year. It was part of the Vienna circuit in 1855, which included Buttzville, Free Union, Sarepta, and Mt Bethel. It is now used as a residence, but still held Methodist services as late as 1976; that is the full extent of my solid information at this time.
