The building was first the home of Mollie Lou Methodist Church Church, a white church near the railroad. It was moved to tis present location many years ago and named Keys Chapel after its district superintendent at that time. He was the grandfather of Rev. T.E. White and Rev. I.E. White, both of Memphis.
The first members of Key's Chapel were Mrs. Lou Ellis, Mrs. Addie Mae Clay and Levi Hillyard. Mrs. Maggie Fountain, Later known as Mrs. Maggie Carver, joined later.
We believe Key's Chapel to be about 75 years old, maybe older. We are now in the process of raising funds to build a new church which is badly needed.
