Mooresville Brick Church

Marker ID: AHC 
County: Limestone
Waymark: None


Completed by 1839 this Greek Revival structure was probably under construction for several years. On Nov. 18, 1838 Alabama's 2nd governor, Thomas Bibb, & his wife Pamelia deeded this property to Wm. K. Adams, Monroe F. Moses & James Allison, trustees of Cumberland Presbyterian church. This denomination retained title, but over the years permitted the Baptist & Methodist to meet here.

Outstanding religious leaders who preached here were Cumberland Presbyterians "Father" Robert Donell, the early leader, and Constantine Blackmon Sanders, the "X+Y=Z Preacher", as well as Methodist Clare Purcell, later Bishop of the North Ala., West Fla. and Central Conferences.
