Established in 1820, Newborn United Methodist is the oldest church in Newton County. This is the third church to have been built on this site. When Newborn was known as Sandtown, pioneer members of the Methodist Episcopal congregation built a log cabin church here. It was replaced by a more permanent structure in 1847, and the present church was built in 1902 and dedicated in 1903.
