Sulphur Springs Church and Campground 1806-1893

Across the highway was a log meeting house and campground visited by Bishop Francis Asbury and early Methodist circuit riders. On this site Col. W. P. Thompson gathered his regiment in 1812. Here Elizabeth Henry Russell often worshipped and this was the home church of the Rev. R. Cannaway. The church, brickcased about 1860, was moved to the present location of Chilhowie United Methodist Church in 1893.
