Mims Chapel Methodist Church & Cemetery

A-M

N-Z


This church was organized by pioneer area settlers before the Civil War. The first building here was a log structure known as the Rock Church because of a large nearby rock where early meetings were held. The church was later named Mims Chapel Methodist Church in honor of brothers John W. Mims (1829-1907) and Henry Mims (1839-1915), who were instrumental in securing this site for the congregation. Graves in the cemetery date from the 1870s and include prominent early community leaders. A schoolhouse here was in use until about 1906.

If you know of an interrment that is not listed here, unmarked graves, cemetery history, have added information for an interrment, or have a gravesite picture you would like to see added, please contact Angela Hartman. Our goal is to put as much information online as is possible.
