ANNIE'S CHAPEL
Copyright 1999 by Debra C. Blackard

Located on Arkansas Hwy. 164 east of Hagarville in Johnson County, Annie's Chapel is an excellent example of early 20th century rural churches of the region. A  sharply pitched roof, steeple, and shiplap siding add to her charm. A committee has been formed to initiate the restoration of Annie's Chapel. Plans include application for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. The nearby cemetery is reported to have been established when high water made burials at historic Newton Cemetery impossible. Decoration is observed on the third Sunday in May. Friends and relatives meet to place flowers on the graves of relatives, enjoy visiting and share "Dinner-on-the-grounds", served on trestles under the old oak trees. Contact Lavania Cooper Hale, I. W. Owen, or Juanita Curtis Smith for more information.
