Holly Grove Methodist Church and cemetery are located in Anacoco, Louisiana.  The historic Holly Grove Methodist Church was founded in 1835 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.  There is a marker on the historic church that says that it is a also a Methodist Historic Site.  Services are no longer held in the historic church but take place across the street at the current Holly Grove United Methodist Church.

A nearby historic marker reads:

First church services 1826
Served by Circuit Riders
Founded in 1835 as
Methodist Protestant Church
Never without a pastor or
church superintendent
Still on original location.
