The Chubb Chapel United Methodist Church family thank you for your purchase of the Chubbtown Calendar 2015. Graciously, the proceeds from the calendar assist in the construction of expanding the annex to serve the church, community, and family.
Chubbtown was a self-sufficient African American community founded pre-Civil War during the mid 1800's and covered over 1280 acres of land in Floyd and Polk Counties. Eight brothers migrated from North Carolina to develop the community and build Chubb Chapel United Methodist Church. Chubb Chapel was constructed in 1870 and is located on Chubbtown Road. Today, the church and a few homes are the only standing structures that were a part of the community.
