The Chubb Chapel United Methodist Church family would
like to thank you in investing in the ongoing maintenance and beautification
of the church by purchasing the Chubbtown Calendar for 2011.
Chubbtown was a self-sufficient African American community founded pre-Civil War during the mid 1800's. Eight brothers migrated from North Carolina to develop the community and build Chubb Chapel United Methodist Church. Today, Chubb Chapel United Methodist Church, constructed in 1870 and located on Chubbtown Road, and a few homes are the only standing structures that were a part of the community, which covered over 1280 acres of land in Floyd and Polk Counties. The church, located on the National Registry of Historical Places, is considered significant
architecturally because it is an example of a small vernacular Gothic Revival-style, country Methodist church build after the Civil War.
The calendar features standing structures including the church, homes, barns, and storage facilities of Chubbtown. These structures were built during the late 1800s through mid-1900s.
