Corinth Church and Cemetery (Huron)

To date, we've neglected the northern portion Of Izard County...mainly due to a lack of knowledge about it. This week, we visited the old Corinth Church near the old community of Huron just south of the Fulton County line. It's a very old site and the cemetery hosts the graves of many early settlers...most notably, the Circuit Rider, George Washington Brinsfield.
As we get more tips (like the ones we got about the Trimble House and this site), we'll be sure to document our findings. It's really beautiful country!

It was a Methodist Church, Vola, from what I've been able to find on the web.

My name is Kelly Tjurner and have been to this church in the wild cherry area as a kid growing up in calico rock. I'm glad to see it kept up and taken notice to.
