Campbells Chapel A.M.E.

The A.M.E. Church was organized the fall of 1860, at the home of Corbin Moore.  Services were later held at Vaughn's pasture.  After purchase of present site a march was led from Vaughn's pasture by Lila Jones, and the first shovel of dirt was turned by her father, Will Burris.  Church was named for the Rev. J.P. Campbell, the 8th consecrated bishop of the church.
