Woodbine Church is active to this day, with Sunday services at 10:30 a.m. The original 1875 "little church" is available for special occasions.

*Apparently, Levi was a busy man. He was the first schoolmaster of Woodbine School, a one-room school just down the road from the church that he founded. There is some speculation that the little community of Woodbine in Independent Hill was named for Levi's home and farm, which was named -- can you guess? -- Woodbine!
