What’s in a name?
In 1920 when Roland Richardson, who is credited with
founding the current location of Patagonia donated the
land for the church, the deed refers to the church as the
Methodist Episcopal Church. In September, 1958, the
church was incorporated under the name Patagonia
Community Methodist Church. Then in June of 1969, the
name was officially changed to Patagonia Community
Church United Methodist (some of these official
documents have a comma after Church – possibly a
typographical error). In 1984 when the Articles of
Incorporation expired and were renewed, the name was
changed to Patagonia Community United Methodist
