China Grove

China Grove Methodist Church in Tylertown, Mississippi, is a historic gem dating back to 1854. This Greek Revival-style church, originally built with a slave gallery, stands as one of the few remnants of the China Grove community, first settled in 1815. The church is crafted from heart pine, with large framing timbers in the attic secured using hand-crafted techniques without nails, showcasing remarkable craftsmanship from the era. Now maintained by Tylertown United Methodist Church, it serves as a venue for weddings, special services, and annual homecoming events. Recognized for its historical significance, the church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to be a cherished piece of Walthall County's heritage.
