Directions: Located on the north side of Highway 179 West a mile northwest of its juncture with Interstate Highway 40. The brick church building housing this congregation now stands on the opposite side of the highway, somewhat to the southwest of the cemetery, but until about the time of the First World War the older meetinghouses had stood adjoining the cemetery. (from JKT Smith book)

Note: In the late 1800's a small frame church house was built about five miles east of Stanton, TN in Haywood County. It was established under the name of Antioch Colored Methodist Episcopal Church (later changed to Douglass Chapel Christian Methodist Episcopal Church) with adjoining cemetery, located on the north side of Hwy 179-west a mile northwest of its juncture with Interstate 40. The brick church building housing this congregation now stands on the opposite side of the highway, somewhat to the southwest of the cemetery. Until about the time of WWI the older meeting house had stood adjoining the cemetery. (From Anna May Dancy Lewis)
