1. Scott Church Marker
Inscription.  Scott Church and its congregation grew from a Sunday school that was started in Blackbird in 1886. By 1898, the church was incorporated and a site for the church was purchased. Construction began in 1899 and the church was dedicated on Sunday, September 17, 1899. The church was completed and furnished at a cost of $1,050. Scott Church is named after Cantwells Bridge native Levi Scott who was a bishop and circuit rider. After serving the community and its congregation for more than 100 years, the final regular service was held on June 29, 2003. In order to restore and preserve the site, the property was purchased by Elizabeth McCain in 2013.
