The church and cemetery are important sites in the area's African American heritage. The church, built in 1885, is not open to the public, and services are held in a new structure. The cemetery has more than 500 graves. Many of those buried there were born as slaves, some of whom lived long enough to experience the Civil Rights movement. Veterans of wars beginning with World War I are also buried there. A number of the graves are indicated by raked dirt mounds, not uncommon in cemeteries in the south.
