Regarding Mt. Carmel Presbyterian Church. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
The origins of the church go back to the winter of 1834 when twenty-four people gathered in the log house of Rev. James Holmes, a former Presbyterian missionary to the Chickasaw Indians in Mississippi. As a result of this meeting on the small hill of Mt. Carmel, a church was organized, elders and deacons elected, and funds subscribed for a church building. During the period of its erection, the members met in the stable for Rev. Holmes' horse. No description remains of the church that was eventually constructed except that it was on a site a little to the west of the present building and had two doorways with steps and faced north. This structure later burned, and the current church was erected around 1854. Although the architect is unknown, the contractor was a Mr. Crenshaw.
