Collinsville, Oklahoma Overview Map (1997)

The original Collinsville townsite was located approximately a mile and a half East of the current city before ~1900. The future Collinsville First Methodist Church will be near that old townsite East of New Highway 169 and North of 146th Street North. The original and present Methodist Church buildings are located 2 blocks North of City Hall/Main Street (on Oak Street between 12th and 13th).

During the time Collinsville had an expanded population (up to ~8000 people) when the zinc smelters were active (~1911-1918) a large portion of Collinsville's people lived on Smelter Hill where this "other" Collinsville Methodist Church was located. More research is required to determine when the church started and ended.
