Mt. Sinai Baptist Church

Neshoba County, Mississippi

Established November 10, 1838

"Mt. Sinai Baptist Church was located off Hwy 21, a few miles from the Neshoba County Fair Grounds. The church disbanded in the 1940's, and the building is gone. There is still a cemetery near where the church was.  This was the second Baptist Church established in Neshoba County, Mississippi."  Dawn Driskell
