    Plainview Methodist Church was located in Section 1 of Squaw Township across from the Shaver Cemetery, however; the cemetery is located in Liberty Township. Little is recorded about this organization. The 1908 History of Warren County states that it was dedicated in 1903. At that time it had a membership of 41. Mrs. John MURPHY was Sunday School Superintendent. Two early pastors were N. D. GORDON and Charles STEWART. Occasional services were held until sometime in the early 1920s. The building was torn down by a Methodist Mission in Des Moines and the land reverted back to the farm owner in 1924.
