Cave Methodist Church and Cemetery

Barnwell Highway. It was completely destroyed by a tornado in 2009, but the historic cemetery remains
on the site. The church, dating back to the 1880’s had many prominent families associated with it.

saw a decrease in active members. The extensive churchyard cemetery, with its many monuments, bear
silent testimony to the numerous, splendid families who supported the church throughout the former
