The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church traces its origins to a group of freed slaves in Jackson, Tennessee, in 1870. They had been members, with their masters, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
The congregation was founded circa 1839. The present structure was built in 1896. It’s apparently the only surviving public building from the lost settlement of Cheevertown.
