Note on the Friendship Methodist Church:

FRIENDSHIP METHODIST CHURCH Established around 1850 as a circuit-rider

church on a site one-half mile from the Springfield Road and Walker Road

crossing. Some of the charter members included Sibley, Graham, Vickers,

McDowell, Covington, and Erwin family members.

Reportedly, during the Civil War, the church members served cornbread

and milk to Confederate soldiers who slept in the church while passing

through the area.

The church was moved to J.P. Covington's land in 1870, and in 1905

it moved to its present site on La. Hwy. 447 north of Walker, on land

donated by George Hall, Sr. (1) -- Mrs. Willie Higginbotham.
