The Old Church Bell at New Chapel

The old church bell at New Chapel is displayed near the church building today. New Chapel, located in southwestern Itawamba County was organized during the 1830's by settlers from South Carolina. At one time New Chapel consisted of two churches - one Methodist and one Presbyterian, but today only the Methodist Church survives. The old cemetery is one of the larger cemeteries of the county with monuments dating back to the 1830's.
