WARREN COUNTY, Tenn. — More than 100 people braved the cold weather permeating the beautiful

hilltops of Tennessee to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Northcutt Cove

Chapel on Saturday, Oct. 17.The little wooden-frame building with its bell tower and spire stands as

a monument to Southern pioneers of the church. \"Our Southern LDS heritage

is rich here in the hills of Tennessee,\" said Keith Fults, former bishop of

the Altamont Ward, McMinnville Tennessee Stake.

Erected in 1909, the building is one of the oldest standing

meetinghouses of the church in the southeastern United States. The chapel

was dedicated Oct. 24, 1909, by Charles A. Callis, president of the

Southern States Mission and later a member of the Quorum of the Twelve. The

chapel was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 18,

1979.
