Starrville Christian Methodist Episcopal Church

In 1870, scarcely seven years after the freeing of slaves, Starrville (colored) Christian Methodist Episcopal Church was organized. The early pioneers were working (just south to where our church site is today) when their owner came and told them they were free. The men were so happy; they fell on their knees and begin giving thanks to God for their freedom.
