The Little White Oak ME Church on Little White Oak, a short distance off the main Oka-White Oak Road has a long history going back over 100 years.
The church, which has been closed for years, is still standing, a reminder of by-gone days when the church flourished.
Local resident Earl Conley, who died in 1999 at age 104, was a key member of the church for many years, and kept the church records.
Conley was married to Martha Ellen White, the couple had 11 children.
